It looks like the Apple crew have been hard at work getting the iWorks apps (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) to play better with Microsoft Office documents. Among the key changes:

  • use of change tracking
  • accept and reject changes
  • imports Word docs with change tracking enable
  • preserve tracked changes in docs exported to Word
  • preserve calculations in tables
  • add reflections to shapes
  • lock and unlock objects
  • Overall some pretty sweet improvements that should make collaboration with co-workers a lot easier and smoother. Now if we can just get it to preserve the pretty Apple fonts: Calibri != Helvetica
