Using Office Libre version Using MacOS most current OS. Tried to open up a Pages document in Office Libre writer. It does not open. Tried more than one Pages document.
Any suggestions? The tag for writer would not work so used tag that doesn't fit. Here is some more information per first comment request: Via Finder I am not given option to select LibreOffice writer. It isn't even listed as I scroll applications. But when I search in the applications dialog window it will show LibreOffice greyed out. I cannot select it.

If I open Libre office (which does run on computer), and do File > Open and select the Pages document: Libre "opens" the file technically as the name of the file is at the top of the window. BUT the document is blank. Nothing is there. Same result whether I just select document I know is *.pages or use the filter and then select.

  • How did you try to open (File - Open; via click in Finder on filename)?
  • Does LibreOffice run at all (without opening a file)?
  • Do you get any error messages?
  • Did you try to File -> Open and selecting Apple Pages (*.pages) in field Filter of the dialog?

Thanks for the update ... Could you upload a sample .pages file?
