    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    You must be thinking, "Wow, another idiot who loses passwords."

    Ok, I don't care about what you think of me so if you be trollin then don't bother leaving a satirical comment.

    I've looked all over the internet for backdoor options and admin passwords overrides--either I haven't looked in the right places or there are none.

    The file is encrypted until the password is entered.

    I don't want to download any programs that say they can recover lost passwords.

    The way I see it, either I find a way to override the system or I take the whole computer in to the nearest apple store and see about physical recovery straight from the HardDrive.

    I am using a 27" iMac System Version: Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L31a)

    Let me be more clear.

    I've lost the password to a Pages file.

    Honestly, if it were that easy to override, the word would soon get around and nobody would use one.

    I know.
    Which is why I'm not looking for an easy fix.
    I've already checked and there are none.
