I transferred a pages file from ipad to mac (also pages) via email for editing. It opened normally. However, after editing, received message that cannot save edited document to the mac because "trial period has expired for iwork"! I have purchased pages for both machines separately and presumed they would work without a hitch. Am I missing something?

It used to be that to update the trial to the licensed version with the box, you just inserted the DVD & ran the installer to convert the trial to licensed. This changed with Snow Leopard. You now need to delete the trial & then reinstall from the boxed DVD or the Mac App Store. The files to delete are the iWork ’09 folder from the main HD > Applications; the iWork ’09 folder in HD > Library > Application Support & the individual iWork application plist files found in HD > Users > (your account) > Library > Preferences for each user.
Yvan Koenig has written an AppleScript that removes the files. You can find it on his iDisk in For_iWork > iWork '09 > uninstall iWork '09.zip.

    Hello, I have Acrobat XI Pro for which I pay by monthly subscription. Each month, for the past three months or so, at renewal time, I receive a note stating that my trial period has expired and I cannot open my Acrobat Files. I have telephoned three or four times each time this happens and have been told that the matter has been resolved - it has not! At one time I had paid inadvertently for three account for Acrobat XI Pro running at the same time - I only need 1. I'm afraid that I may have just opened a second account by mistake in order to open my files. I repeat, I only require one account. Would you please advise and assure me that this matter has finally been resolved and that I will no longer receive these notifications each month..

    I don't work for Adobe but it seems to me you might be signing in to Acrobat with the wrong Adobe ID.
    Check the Adobe ID you use in Acrobat.
    Check this Adobe ID on Adobe's to make sure that it has an active subscription.

    I would like to buy my boyfriend the iphone 5. He has an upgrade - but can I purchase it for Christmas now and get money back when he activates and uses his upgrade?

    Or purchase an Apple Gift Card for him to use to get a phone at Apple after Christmas. He gets the card as the Christmas gift and can go get the phone himself. It would cost you the same amount of money.

  • Trial period has expired for legit CS6 Creative Cloud subscription??

    Last night Adobe Application Manager upgraded itself.  All well and good.  It showed correctly what CS6 apps I had downloaded and installed previously.
    I am a CS6 Creative Cloud subscriber with nine months to go.
    Subsequently when I tried to start Dreamweaver or for that matter any other creative CS6 application, like Photoshop - I get the following error:
    Your trial period has expired!
    I have been using all installed Creative Cloude appd for the last 3-4 months with no problems!  Why this now??
    StellaC

    The creative cloud subscription is fine but the whole 'license expired' license this software, you have 5 days left of your trial or 'please enter your serial number' (what serial number for the cloud ??) that seems to pop up at alarming rate on both of my machines.
    As soon as I re-log on with my adobe id (which never seems to be logged in however many times I log in and say 'remember') it then 'activates' my subscription .. but never remembers by the afternoon!
    The whole thing is just not very slick. It is not very impressive that every two or three days I have to keep re-activating etc the subscription to the cloud, sometimes it takes quite a few run arounds with the logon before it finally says ... 'yes, you are activated / subscribed etc or whatever'.
    Surely with creative cloud, perhaps the applications could be re-written to realize that there is a creative cloud and that the person using the app is not requiring to buy the product or stop using the trial etc. I wonder is this happening all the time for all the users of the cloud ??
    I can understand the cloud / Adobe need to check that the person is running a legit version but it is not going to leave a good impression with all the users if dialogs pop up all the time with odd messages saying about trial versions or 4 days left of your trial.
    Just a simple dialog ... if a cloud member, 'please connect to the web to check activation etc'... and then allow the user to continue with the product.

  • Pages file from iPad won't open on Mac

    My iPad has Pages version 2.0 (1058). It uses iCloud and runs iOS 7.0.3.
    My Mac has iWorks 09, bought as a hard package with disc, not from AppStore. The Pages included in that says it's version 4.3. Running under Mavericks on an iMac.
    Wrote a file on the iPad today. Trying to open it on the Mac yields a message "You need a newer version of Pages to open this document". So I looked at the support pages and found a recommendation to download an update of iWorks to version 9.3. The support page said "iWork Update 9.3 adds support for iWork for iOS 1.7 apps." Whatever that is.
    Did this and installed. My Pages still claims to be version 4.3 and will not open the document in iCloud, written on the iPad. Same error message. This is a bit annoying. Does it mean I need to buy a new iWorks version for the Mac in order to get it to work with the iPad version?
    Åke

    iWork 9.3 includes Pages 4.3, but Pages 2.0 for iOS requires Pages 5.0 on a Mac. Pages 5.0 needs OS X Mavericks, so you have to upgrade Mac OS X.
    Open the Mac App Store and download OS X Mavericks. Make a backup of your files with Time Machine and check that your apps are compatible > http://www.roaringapps.com
    After upgrading, open the Mac App Store, go to Updates tab and download the most recent Pages version free of charge

  • Mailing Pages files from iPad 2

    I want to send files from my iPad 2 to my laptop and destop Macs. Both are older, still running Snow Leopard. My process was to go to the document in Pages on the iPad, choose Send a Copy, choose Pages as the format, and then mail it to my account and open it on one of the other machines. The attachment, even a very short pages file, appears as a zip file but can't be opened with Stuffit expander or simply by clicking. There is an error message saying that the file can't be opened because the required index.xml file is missing. Can it really be true that you can't share a file in the same program between two Apple devices? I can send a Pages document TO the iPad and open it with no problem, but not the other way around. I thought I had been able to do it before, but maybe not, or else something has changed with updates to the OS.
    I discovered that if I choose to create a PDF file, I can open that and then copy and paste the text into a Pages file. That's a workaround, but it still seems wrong that I can't simply send and open a Pages file. Is there a trick?

    Do you have "use iCloud" turned on on the iPad? (in settings)
    And on your computer, If you open iCloud and turn on Documents and data?
    This will auto sync your Pages documents between the devices each time you open pages.
    I can work on a document on one device.  Open and print on another.  Each time I open pages the documents all update.

  • Can't open Pages files from iPad in Word 2010 on PC

    I have not been able to open any files created on my iPad (iOS 6.0.1) with Apple Pages in Microsoft Word 2010 on Windows XP Pro and hope someone can suggest a solution.
    I am emailing the files as attachments (.docx files)  When I try to open the file on my PC, I get an error message when I open them in Word that says:
    Word was unable to read this docuemnt.
    Try one or more of the following:
    * Open and repair the file.
    * Open the file with the Text Recovery converter. (C:\Users\...\name of file.doc)
    In addition, I tried to open the .docx file in Openoffice.org 3.4.1 and it got a read error.
    Any suggestions? Is there any kind of plug-in/add-in for MS Word 2010 that would correct the problem?
    Thanks,
    Rich
    Additional: Pages was purchased today from the App store; iPad is Gen4 a couple days old

    So...I have played with it more.  Simple documents work most of the time.  But if I take a more complex doc to Pages, edit it and save it as a Word doc then trasnfer it back to  PC or Mac it will fail to open.
    Would be nice if I could trust the App.  WIll mess more with it but it is very frustrating.

  • Transferring iTunes U files from iPad to iMac

    I don’t seem to be able to transfer a iTunes U lecture video to my iMac. When I transfer purchases, everything transfers but that. Is there an alternate way? Also iTunes does seem to be able to play iTunes U videos on my iMac from my iPad.

    Sync seems very broken right now, at least on my macbook/ipad combo (using itunes 10.5.3).
    If you start downloads from your ipad, sync doesn't copy back any course documents, and also because they're not on the source mac, get broken in the itunes U app. The video's get copied accross however, and after pulling the cord out and back in again, you can drag the video's that made it to your mac back onto your ipad to replace it.
    So say you want the course documents on your mac, and go download them manually from the itunes store, then copy them accross in the same way as the video's.. they make the motions of copying, but just vanish.
    Never had problems like this using apple products before. Not sure what the purpose of the Itunes U section in Sync is... Can someone who's successfully synced video's and documents between the iTunes U app and Itunes on the desktop set me straight? I was hoping it worked like apps.. when there's a mismatch syncing resolves itself great for apps...

  • CS6 which I own and have used for years won't open. Blocked because the system thinks I am a CC user and my trial period has expired

    I own the suit of Adobe Programs which I have been using for years.  They are paid for and registered and I have serial numbers. 
    Today, I cannot open the programs.  The message is: Design and Web Premium Trial. Expired.  I do not want to use CC.  I tried it for a day quite a while ago and decided just to buy the programs. 
    What can I do?
    How to get back to my paid programs?

    If you see a trial screen, click on "license this software". I forget if you have to sign in with your Adobe ID/password before or after, but it will give you a serial number option. That is you would see a button, "I have a serial number" or a screen where you input your serial number.
    Once accepted, your software will go back to its' licensed state.
    Also if you still have problems be sure you are still not on any 30 day Cloud plan that you must cancel. Uninstalling CC may not be enough.
    Contact Customer Care to cancel your trial or plan.
