PAGES09 File

This page contains information on the PAGES09 file extension (Apple iWork '09 Pages word processing document), a popular document file format

File extension.pages09
CategoryDocument File
DescriptionFiles with a .pages09 file extension are word processing documents which are generated by Apple's "Pages" application in versions 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 (these versions of the software were released between 2009-2012).

This is distinct from the pages file produced by more modern versions of iWork.

Pages forms part of Apple's iWork office suite, a set of applications which run on the Mac OS X and iOS operating systems, and also includes Numbers (for spreadsheets) and Keynote (for presentations).

Pages is a hybrid application, first released by Apple in February 2005, that allows users to perform both word processing and page layout tasks.

Technical DetailsOfficial file format specifications for iWork '09 pages files are not published by Apple but there have been attempts by some developers to reverse engineer them. At the top level iWork '09 pages files represent a zip file containing:
  1. An index.xml file
  2. A buildVersionHistory file
  3. A "QuickLook" directory with a "Thumbnail.jpg" of the document. The directory may also contain a PDF file named "Preview.pdf" if the user chose to save the original document with additional preview information in Pages.
The index.xml is the core component of the file, containing the document content and all of the metadata for formatting it. This XML is not standards-based as Pages does not support the OpenDocument file format used by Microsoft.

Files created by Pages in iWork '09 are not backwards compatibile with earlier versions of iWork. Pages files cannot be opened by programs other than iWork.
