I just checked and my LibreOffice writer does, indeed, have the option to open a .pages file, so I presume Calc will able to open a .numbers file. I also double checked just now, I do not have any extensions installed for that. Or any extensions, for that matter.
So I suspect the is a MimeType on apple for it, that you might be able to use here. Or you might be able to create your own. I don’t have a .numbers or .pages file to play with, though.
Give me a little bit of time to experiment. I have so far no idea what MIME ist etc.
I would like to upload some assorted folders with ClarisWorks, AppleWorks, .pages and .numbers files and their respective conversions into LibreOffice done on a Mac. But this far I cannot see here the possibility to upload folders or zip-files. Must I upload every single file individually?
The shortcuts for working with the editor is at the bottom there:
^G Help ^O Write Out ^W Where Is ^K Cut ^T Execute ^C Location M-U Undo M-A Set Mark M-] To Bracket M-Q Previous ^B Back ^◂ Prev Word ^A Home ^P Prev Line
^X Exit ^R Read File ^\ Replace ^U Paste ^J Justify ^/ Go To Line M-E Redo M-6 Copy ^Q Where Was M-W Next ^F Forward ^▸ Next Word ^E End ^N Next Line
Yeah, it’s kinda difficult to figure out for one who does not face the restriction anymore,
but what I really meant is: experiment.
… there is only two or three options … the text version of the link will come through with one of them
links don’t have to be “clickable”
I always post links formatted as quotes
in order to avoid the link to be resolved and part of the content be shown.
… I just want to post the link …
Now I uploaded a heap of files in assorted folders to Dropbox:
The folders are:
1 ClarisWorks 2.1 Text documents
2 ClarisWorks 4.0 Text documents
3 ClarisWorks 4.0 other documents
4 AppleWorks 6.0 Text documents
5 AppleWorks 6.0 other documents
6 Pages 4.0.3 text documents
7 Numbers 2.0.3 spreadsheet documents
Inside you will find the Apple files alongwith their conversions to LibreOffice files – so that you have an idea of what they are supposed to look like after conversion. As I said, I could do the conversion easily on MacOS: LibreOffice opens all of them.
Mark: (My) ClarisWorks files have no file name extension. This started only with (my) AppleWorks 6.0 files, which have .cwk or .cws
