Here, we need a laugh. Have one on me:
I adore my MacBook BUT Apple Pages (Word) and Numbers (Excel) suck LARGE POINTY ROCKS. They're designed with graphics in mind and the files sizes are ginormous because Apple automatically loads stuff to support graphics. An 80k novel in Word is like 350K. In Pages it's 1.5 MEGS. Yeah.
I outline in Numbers (Excel) because it's how I learned. I'm comfortable with it. Tried Scrivener twice but it slowed me down. I write mahoosive outlines and have multiple-page spreadsheets with plot points, character charts,
I'm working on two books (bad Lily!]. A caper mystery and a portal fantasy. I came up with new ideas for the portal fantasy. Its spreadsheet in Numbers is all over the map and I wanted to convert it to a Pages doc to organize it.
Can't be done. [insert much cussing]
[insert about 20 minutes of research]
Result: Convert the Numbers spreadsheet to an Excel spreadsheet. Upload the Excel spreadsheet to Google Sheets and convert that to an actual Google Sheets. THEN download from Google an app called Convert to Doc. THEN select one tab at a time from the spreadsheet and convert that tab to a Google doc. But! If your tab has multiple columns, and all of my tabs but one do, you have to convert each column to its own doc, or the rows of each column will interleave like a pack of cards.
You can't make this stuff up.
At least now I have a pile of regular docs to sort and reorder. #WhyWritersDrink
