Im using OS X 10.9.4 (13E28) and have downloaded (and donated) Libre Office hoping to succeed where I've failed with OpenOffice

It won't open any of the documents I've worked on recently .pages All I'm wanting is an app that will edit tabled templates from work where I am studying for an NVQ3 Emergency Health Care and need to work on these at home and send back to work. I've no idea what version of MS Word work use and am not at all interested in becoming an expert on this app. I just want to get on with my actual submissions for assessment of my NVQ study.

So the question is What do I need to do to ensure the correct extensions when saving to ensure formatting will be compatible with MS Office docs?

Thank you.

If you have average needs, then possibly the .doc import/export is still more mature than the .docx one. Give it a try and see if using that helps. Other than that, if you have a document that's imported or exported with problems, then please file a bug with a reproducer document here:
