According to, Pages can read and write .docx files, as can LibreOffice.

Still, LibreOffice works best with .odt files. From

However, .odt or .fodt text documents don't open in iWork/Pages.

If you encounter this problem, don't panic. TextEdit, the simple word processor that comes pre-installed on Macs, can open .odt documents. Click on the file, drag it onto the TextEdit icon in the Dock and it will open.

You can then work on the document in TextEdit or copy-paste it into Pages if needed.
