    My school isn't very mac friendly; so its extreamly hard for me to print any of my papers off in the lab. What's easiest way I can convert all my pages documents into Microsoft Word (08')

    thanks

    In Pages, click "Save As"
    Check off "Save copy as"
    Then choose Word Document

    Though to be honest, you might be better exporting to PDF and taking that in? The conversion from Pages to Word is unlikely to be 100% perfect (Word definitely has some funny ideas about typography; it tends to ignore things like pair kerning — where, for example, the 'o' in 'You' is pushed slightly under the 'Y' rather than needing to be sufficiently to the right that an imaginary vertical line could be drawn between them), but the PDF should be perfect and it sounds like all you want to do is print?

    If so, the procedure is the same as for any Mac app, click 'Print...', then use the PDF drop-down in the subsequent dialogue.
