    I can convert a Pages document to Word when I attach it to an email or something but now I need to transfer the last three years of work over to a Windows computer and it would take all day if I have to do it one by one. There must be a way to use - what's it called again? iTunes?

    To the best of my knowledge there is no way to do it from the iPad. A Google search shows a few ways to do it using Pages and a script on a Mac. There is probably a utility to do it on Windows, but I did not see it in my rather casual search.

    To copy the files to a Windows computer in preperation for conversion, you could probably use the icloud.com site (if you've been using iCloud with Pages).

    Thanks for your advice, Twerppoet, I remember your guidance here when I first got an iPad years ago.
    A bit here and there is getting the job done. I even found something a little quicker; copy and paste the text into Evernote. At least I don't have to twiddle while waiting for the conversion over a slow satellite link.
    Now I have an el cheapo Chinese Windows tablet the size of an iPad Pro that can even run my CAD program (enough for presentations anyway) and more USB ports than I can use. At last it's goodbye to snooty apple and their ghastly iTunes.
