Tip for Pages and Scribe plugin

Discussion created by techt on Dec 20, 2017

Scribe is a great plugin for manipulating Word docs. For the MacOS users out there, Pages would export Word format, but I was never able to get it to work. It was required that I build the document in Word, then I could use the Scribe plugin with that file. Pages would opening it after the merge, etc., but I couldn't use it for creation.

 

Now maybe it was always this way, but I thought I'd give it another try since all of the recent changes to FMP, MacOS, Scribe, and Pages. While Pages will export the .docx format, it doesn't append that suffix. Who knows why, maybe some licensing issue.

 

In any case, adding the suffix to the Pages file allows Scribe to work with the file. Thought this was too good to keep to myself and I hope it helps others out there.

 

Cheers!
