@floris v - what should that tell us considering available import filter at File -> Open (may be I misunderstood the answers as no way to open .pages files, which is a correct answer for Apache OpenOffice,iirc)

I'd suggest to explicitly select the import filter when using File -> Open (from my experience LibreOffice in rare cases fails to recognize the file type by the file's content and in consequence doesn't apply the correct import filter on opening)

You're right, I took it for granted that the filter wouldn't be there. I was wrong.

Anyway, checked bugzilla in the meantime and it might be related to bug tdf#139175 - Import from Apple Pages
