Change New iWork Documents Back Into Old iWork ’09 Documents With Cloud Convert

CloudConvert, you will remember, is a web service that lets you convert any document from you Dropbox into pretty much any other file type that makes sense. Now, it has added support for iWork documents, letting you convert Pages documents to Word DOC and DOCX for example.

The killer for some, though, is that you can roll back your newly screwed-up iWork files to work with iWork ’09.

Some folks don’t like the new iWork apps as they ditch a lot of functionality in order to start over with a simpler, more intuitive experience. It’s like iMovie all over again (and Final Cut X, I guess).

In future, Pages and Numbers will surely be even better than the versions they replaced, but for now you can take you new files back to the old apps with CloudConvert. And if you just want to send newer files to people who didn’t yet upgrade, that’s now possible too.

Here’s the full list of new conversions:

PAGES to DOC
PAGES to DOCX
PAGES to PDF
PAGES to TXT
PAGES to PAGES (PAGES 09)

NUMBERS to XLS
NUMBERS to XLSX
NUMBERS to PDF
NUMBERS to NUMBERS (NUMBERS 09)

KEY to PPT
KEY to PDF
KEY to KEY (KEYNOTE 09)

But maybe it’s enough just to convert from Microsoft’s Office documents to use them in proper apps.
