    I generated a document in Pages with the intention of importing it from InDesign... but to my frustration, the Pages doc is grayed out. Got no choice but to export the Pages doc into Word doc. Kainis... killjoy naman 'tong InDesign.

    Hi,

    Have you tried selecting all of the text/document and copy then paste to InDesign?

    Thanks for the suggestion but doing that means loosing the word formatting I did in the Pages doc.

    How I wish InDy could recognize Pages doc using the Place command (which is the proper way of importing text files into InDy and PM, right?).

    Ah probably because Pages was meant to be a word processor and at the same time a lay-out program, neither Apple nor Adobe bothered to talk about "integration" of these two softwares. Well, well, well...back to MS Word na lang ako.

    Oh well, most of my writers and clients submit stuff in MS Word format anyway. :eek:

    True but at least you don't have to type the whole thing all over again. Just have to re-format it and if you set your character and paragraph styles correctly, it should not be a problem.:)
