    I bet it would work just fine with Microsoft Office for Mac.

    Have you considered buying that? I know it costs money, $149.99, but all these problems could disappear in a giant hurry.

    "All these problems" are not problems for me. I actually PREFER Pages. I have no use for MS Office. Im on Sprint, and in about a month will have an iOS device that will auto sync (iCloud) my docs in the original format. The TP is my third, and least important, device. I love webOS, but I work on my Mac.

    That said, if anyone does use MSOffice on a Mac, please try this and see if its the case.

    Itd be odd though, since Quickoffice has a very successful app for iOS that works just fine with Pages. (so Im told)

    If nobody responds, you can always download the trial for free from Microsoft's site just to test QuickOffice compatibility.

    my formatting is off on my invoices in word. Never had a problem in Polaris or Docs To Go on Android. Scrunches all my tables up and takes the document to two pages. Simple Office 03' docs with a few tables in them and basic fonts. This shouldn't be an issue.

    The compatibility issues you mention probably has to do with different fonts and spacing.

    This is a decent overview of compatibility between Office/iWorks and may give some insights regarding compatibility between vendors' products like QuickOffice:

    This is good? This is good? You can edit documents but not in redline so no one can easily see what you did? You can't open up docs in redline and see those redlines? So disappointed. I'm selling my Touchpad. I'm done.

    Is there a way to print a spreadsheet? I do not see an icon like in their word processor.

    The update hangs both PDF and Quickoffice, anyone know why?

    I sent a support ticket regarding Mac (Pages) compatibility to Quickoffice and already got a reply:

    Dear Ryan,
    Thank you for your message.
    I'm terribly sorry for any inconvenience caused.
    Currently, as I know, we do provide support for MS Office created files, I don't think that we support Open office and Pages created files.
    So it's better to use MS Office for MAC to see, if the issue is fixed.
    Please let me know if you have any other questions.
    Thank you and have a great day.

    So, I'm trying a free trial of MS Office for Mac.. Although it sounds like some have noticed formatting issues even with MS Office...? Oh well, I'll try and report back.

    I do like pages on my mac, but i also have OpenOffice installed. That might be youre solution as well. Open quickoffice doc in OpenOffice, then convert it for Pages. thats what i can think off.

    I have OO 3.3 and it doesn't work either, as I mention in earlier posts. Notice that the Quickoffice support message says that they don't support OO formats either.

    OK, so I tried using Quickoffice with my trial copy of MS Office for Mac. Here's the results:

    Works perfectly. No kidding... wow, what a difference. The files I'd created before on the TP now open from the emails I sent myself to look exactly like they did on TP. My font colors, spacing, centering, numbered lists... basically all of the features that QO on TP can produce, open in MS Word 7. I created a doc in Word on the Mac, and sent it via email to the TP... and again, it opened perfectly. It even recognized and let me make changes in the font I had used in Word (Helvetica, naturally) and, just for that document, added that font in its drop down font list. (Normally there are only 3) I changed some font colors, highlighted some text, added some text, and emailed it back. MS Word for Mac then opened it and saw all those changes, correctly formatted.

    So, I think that QO for TP, though somewhat limited, actually works just fine... If you are using MS Office 7. But, is this worth $149 to me, when I actually prefer Pages, have hundreds of docs now in Pages that I don't want to convert, and will soon be using iOS5 that will give me syncing in Pages between phone and laptop? I don't think so. Rats.

    Is there a way to format cells in spreadsheet (like currency, etc...)? I don't see the format panel at the bottom.

    No, but I just tried this: created a spreadsheet in MS Excel for Mac, using cell formatting=currency. When opened on TP in QO, the formatting was there, and data I put in new cells had the formatting applied as well.

    I think that for creating docs, the QO is pretty bare bones, but for editing both Word and Excel files, it is capable of recognizing and working with functions and formatting that it does not have within itself... like different fonts, cell formatting, etc. So that's something. Probably more useful, since most of us create the actual doc on a laptop or desktop, and just want to be able to edit it while away on a tablet or smartphone. And if you had to create one on the TP without some functions you desired, you could always apply them later from the computer.

    Still, I'd expect future updates to include many more features... likely at a price, since Quickoffice for Android and iOS are quite feature rich... and not free.

    Hmm...thanks. That means it has less function than Thinkoffice on my Optimus One. Shame.

    My quick office viewing is not working on Touch pad . I am on webos 3.0.2 and using quickoffice version v2.1.1905 with size 16.22M. Can someone with editing please tell me the version they have installed, so i can hope that the OTA update will fix the problem?
    If there are other ways to correct it, let me know. Thanks in advance.

    Desiguy, that's the same version I have and I can edit. I would contact Quick Office support if I were you.
    I am, therefore I think
