    Hi, I am wondering that my paper that I downloaded from my gmail account that went to Text Edit has the same spacing and things as Microsoft Word. This is sort of important because it's a research paper and I cannot lose points for that kind of things.
    Also, anyone how to do headers?

    Thanks,
    ChrisN

    I'll try that, is there a way to export it(document) or should I just copy and paste it?

    Thanks,

    You can save as .doc

    With Pages, if you want to keep formatting exact, go to File->Export->PDF

    Just right click and click open with neooffice/openoffice

    Or in google docs, just click open in google docs next to the attachment in your gmail

    It'd be easy enough to configure TextEdit to format like the basic Word template in the future.
