Pages ‘11 creates MASSIVE Word files
Sorry if this has been raised before but when using Pages ‘09 all exported Word files were generally much smaller than the original Pages document.
In Pages ‘11, however, the reverse is true. Here are the actual file sizes of 4 documents that only contain the same four words:
Pages ‘09: 38kb
Word version: 15kb
Pages ‘11: 65kb
Word version: 493kb
Sending 0.5mb files is, of course, no issue, but I cannot understand why the exported Word files are so large and even why the new Pages ‘11 documents are twice the size of an equivalent ‘09 version.
As an aside, I still much prefer Pages ‘09 and this is my default application for word processing. I look forward to anyone else’s experience and advice.
