    Can I set up pages to automatically save everything in .doc format?

    Thanks

    My first guess would be no. But I'm no expert on Pages. Hopefully, someone will be around soon to answer your question.

    No. You only can save to the native pages format. You can export the document to a Word format, but the main saving format is .pages and nothing else.

    I'm guessing it will take an automator script or something similar to do this since it requires an "export", not a "save as..."

    Unless the person you're sending it to needs to edit the document, I would recommend exporting as a PDF instead of a .doc. Using .doc messes up the formatting if you have a lot of it, where as a PDF will look exactly like your .pages file.
