Enables exporting and sending of documents in a different format from the macOS Share menu. (Free, various sizes, macOS 12.3+)

The iOS versions are still not up to par to the MacOS versions. There’s still a lot of missing formatting and no quick way to use a format. In MacOS, I can designate function keys to select a format. Not in iOS/iPadOS. I can’t do a mail merge in iOS.

If Apple is serious about the iPad being a serious computer, they need to improve their iWork packages on iOS/iPadOS.

I could find nothing in the link to the new Numbers that told me if files saved by the new version can be opened by older versions. Does anyone here know?

!. Numbers 12.2 had a 500-font limit, and was very slow setting fonts in a document that already had many fonts. Numbers 13 handles fonts quickly and handles 600+ fonts in a document with no sign of any limit, EXCEPT:
2. I asked Numbers 13 to replace one font (of the 600 in the document) with another. Instead it replaced about 20 fonts, with no obvious pattern.

:bangbang: What kind of spreadsheet do you have that uses 600 different fonts? Genuinely curious, this sounds kind of amazing.


I think he means via MacOS. Numbers 12 can only access the first 500 fonts whereas Numbers 13 apparently can access more than 600.
