ExtensionSmallImg What is .PAGES file?

Document created by Apple Pages, a word processor and page layout program; may be a basic text document or a complex multi-page brochure; can include text, pictures, photos, tables, graphs, and charts; may be created from a blank page or built from a template. PAGES files are stored in the .ZIP format and include a .JPG file and an optional .PDF file that provide a preview for the document. Therefore, if you want to view the contents of a PAGES file manually in Mac, use the following instructions: Rename the ".pages" file extension to ".zip." Extract the resulting Zip file with a Zip decompression utility. The extracted files should contain a folder named QuickLook. Navigate to this folder. In the QuickLook folder, open the file Thumbnail.jpg. This file only gives a preview of the first page of the document, but can still be helpful in some situations. In the QuickLook folder, there may also be a PDF file named Preview.pdf. Open this file to view a preview of the entire PAGES document. Note that the PDF file is only created if the user chose to save the original document with additional preview information in Pages. NOTE: Pages is part of Apple's iWork suite, which also includes Keynote (for presentations) and Numbers (for spreadsheets).
