This article explains why Artlogic is not compatible with Apple programs such as Pages or Numbers and only with Office 365.
The reason we cannot support Apple’s ‘Pages’ and ’Numbers’ apps is because Apple is a closed universe and there are no programmable methods for generating their proprietary documents, in the same way that Apple make it very hard for non-authorised resellers to service their hardware. Our systems programatically generate both Word and Excel document on the fly but this is simply not possible for Apple’s applications. It is possible to open Word and Excel documents in Pages and Numbers, but results are patchy and we cannot control the output. Furthermore, in order to customise documents into the ‘house style’ that our clients prefer (e.g. using custom fonts), users may upload Word documents into our systems which are then used as the template for all new documents created by the Artlogic database. Once again this level of control is simply not possible in Pages, and probably never will be.
