    Looking forward to some interesting discussions.
    Does anyone know if there is a way (an app) which can convert a PDF to a Pages document only using the IPad? Lots of apps to do the reverse and software that can do it on a Mac. Any info welcome. Cheers.

    Hi there-I don't have an answer for you, but perhaps others may.

    The iPadForum also includes a Regional Ipad Group for international users across the world. This is a wonderful area to "find" members from your own country.

    I am not aware of any iPad app that will do what you want.

    Even on a computer apps to convert PDF's back to editable documents are few and quirky in execution. When you output a document as a PDF you lose a lot of the information from the original document. Putting it back in is mostly a matter of guesswork, and most apps are poor guessers. Easy enough to get the text, if it's not all graphics (which it can be). Almost impossible to get the layout back as anything like the original.
