‡ When you’re working with Pages & Keynote files, Apple offers two formats to use when saving your projects. One is “single file”, which is great for sharing documents online, and the other is “package”, for working with large projects locally. Lingo only supports the “single file” format, but it’s easy to switch between the two file formats: with your file open in Pages or Keynote, go to the File menu, select Advanced > Change File Type, and pick “Single File”. For more information, check out this Apple Help article.
