    Hi,

    I typed up a report in Word 2011. I was curious and decided to paste over the report into pages. The report ended up being longer. Same margins, header/footer length. Even the last word on each line of each paragraph was the same.

    I can't seem to understand why Pages would render it longer? Even the spaces between lines appears to be the same.

    Thanks.

    Maybe the font changed when you pasted it into pages.

    Measure the height of a paragraph on two versions. If that differs then you have either different line spacing or different fonts. Make sure both are formatted with the same OS X font.
