Copying and Pasting Between Pages, Numbers and Keynote
Pages, Numbers and Keynote for Mac share a common code base and can support many of the same elements, like text boxes, shapes, images, tables and more. You can copy and paste elements from one into the other. This can be handy when you wish to include tables or charts from Numbers in a presentation of word processing document. Or, when you want to take a slide from Keynote and use it in a spreadsheet or Pages document.
If I copy a chart into Keynotes from Numbers, will the chart update/sync if I change the information in Numbers?
Eric: No. The numbers aren't linked. So take your chart with final figures into Keynote, or plan to Command+tab and switch apps to Numbers if that works better in your case.
If I copy from Numbers 5.3 into Pages 7.3 running Mojave how do I paste as normal text?
Colin: Not sure what you mean. If you copy a table, it will paste as a table. If you copy selected text, it will paste as text.
Gary, I'd like to paste a table just as text
Colin: Try this. Copy the table. Open a new document in TextEdit. Choose Format, Make Plain Text. Paste the table into TextEdit. Select and copy the text. Paste it into Pages/Keynote.
