    I am hoping to find a way to open my applworks documents ins Pages.

    So far, I haven't had any luck.

    In particular, I would like to open some drawing documents.

    I tried to paste it into a word processing document, then save it as a .doc, but when i opened it in pages, it came out blank.

    You tried just opening it with Pages. I have gotten Applework documents before and just opened them with Pages. Do you have some crazy pictures or layout? If Pages is on the dock, just drag and drop the Applework document on to the Pages icon, and it should open it up with Pages.

    If not, for your drawing, can't you Select All in Appleworks and then paste into a new Pages doc, if nothing else works?

    Pages doesn't support opening AW drawing documents directly, but you can copy and paste a drawing from AW to a Pages document. AW word processing files open directly in Pages without any issues that I've been able to find.
