Pages can't open a pdf file, it can just export in that format. If you need to edit the pdf you can use Adobe Acrobat. Or, if there's not too much layout, you can simply copy the pdf text and paste it in a blank Pages document, and then edit it there.

If you actually need the text of the PDF file in Pages you'll either have to perform a series of copy and pastes or purchase a program that converts PDF files to text format. Usually the output of such a program requires some editing, it isn't perfect but when the document is long, it sure beats copying and pasting page after page after page.
You can also import a single PDF file into Pages as a graphic file, not a text file. But this might be another solution.

I use on a regular basis the free PDF OCR X which apply only on single page document but I wrote a script to split multipage PDF documents.
I get good results on single column documents and this app spared a lot of time.

"copy the pdf text and paste it in a blank Pages document."

There is now a .pdf to Pages converter that supposedly works very well. the solutions here would work but would involve a TON of manual labor and wouldn't look great because of kerning, leading etc being out of whack. Google the pdf to Pages converter and try the free demo, It's supposed to be awesome. I haven't tried it because I do most in InDesign now but I've heard excellent things about it. (I don't work for them no, LOL) report back so we know...these other answers don't say much...not very realistic to take any of these routes if you don't have to.

IIt'd be great if you could mention the name of the app that converts PDFs to Pages "very well."
I saved a web page as a PDF on my iPad. The only program it would allow me to save it in is iBooks. It's there, but have no option to send it to Pages or anywhere else, only to print it. It also won't allow me to cut and paste the text.
How can I access it? I'd love to save it as an image, but i can't figure out how to do that, either.
Jul 31, 2016 1:54 PM in response to thomfromsan francisco
thanks for any help!

iBooks for iOS has a Sharing icon. Send that Web Page PDF to yourself as an email attachment, save it to your Desktop on the Mac, and then drag/drop that PDF into Pages as content.
With the PDF selected in Pages, you can then select the Arrange tab in the right panel, and scale and rotate it (if you need landscape orientation). Pages is not however, a PDF editor.

Hey there! I had this same problem, but I found that zamzar (an online file conversion service) can convert PDF files to docx files, which pages can then open (automatically converting to pages document). It's not perfect, but much better than manually copying and pasting.
May 4, 2017 12:33 AM in response to thomfromsan francisco
I know this question was submitted in 2011! I am running 10.6.8, which is ridiculously old. I have iWork '09. I received a document made in Publisher / .pub format. I converted the .pub to a PDF. I used this website https://online2pdf.com I was simply going to copy the text into Pages however, it copied over with no formatting, specifically, no returns. I read all the suggestions on this page and decided to convert the PDF to a doc and then let Pages convert the doc. This site converted it with excellent quality for free, fast, and did not require an email. https://smallpdf.com/pdf-to-word
Once downloaded, I right clicked the document, hovered over "Open With" and chose Pages from the list.
The document had many Hawaiian words and okinas that I did not want to deal with manually. I feel this process saved me a great deal of time. I hope this can help someone if you come across this thread and your setup and situation are similar to mine.

LibreOffice can open Publisher files. I've found it does a decent job but it has been awhile since I've needed to use it for this purpose.
May 4, 2017 9:41 AM in response to Peggy
Before you posted, I opened a .pub file in LibreOffice v5.3.2 and noted the output formats available. There is no path to a word processing format. Instead, one can save as, or export to:
- Open Document Graphics (.odg)
- HTML (needs to be output to a folder, as the .pub images and pages are separated into .png, and filename.html (as individual slides of each .pub page).
- various image formats (including .svg), and single-page TIFF
May 4, 2017 11:32 AM in response to VikingOSX
As I said, it has been awhile. This may be yet another instance where an older version of LibreOffice is needed.

Export to Word, PDF, or another file format in Pages on Mac
To save a copy of a Pages document in another format, you export it in the new format. This is useful when you need to send the document to people who are using different software. Any changes you make to the exported document don’t affect the original.
If you added marks or edits using smart annotations, they won’t appear in exported Word, EPUB, or Pages ’09 documents. You can export a document to PDF with or without smart annotations and comments.
Note: If the original file has a password, it applies to copies exported in PDF, Word, and Pages ’09 formats, but you can change or remove it.
Save a copy of a Pages document in another format
Open the document, then choose File > Export To > [ file format ] (from the File menu at the top of your screen).
Specify export settings:
PDF: These files can be opened and sometimes edited with applications like Preview and Adobe Acrobat. Click the Image Quality pop-up menu, then choose an option (the higher the image quality, the larger the file size). If you added image, drawing, audio, or video descriptions for assistive technology (for example, VoiceOver), they’re automatically exported. To include smart annotations or comments, select the corresponding checkbox. To include accessibility tags for large tables, click Advanced Options, then choose On.
Word: If the file needs to be compatible with an older version of Microsoft Word (1997-2004), click Advanced Options, then choose .doc from the pop-up menu.
EPUB: Use this format to make your document readable in an ebook reader (such as Apple Books). Enter the title and author name, then choose a cover option.
For word-processing documents only, choose a layout type. A fixed layout preserves the layout of your document and is best for documents with multiple columns or lots of images. A reflowable layout adapts to the screen size and orientation and lets users change the font size. It’s best for documents with lots of text.
To set optional features, click the disclosure arrow next to Advanced Options, then choose a category, specify the document’s language, set the view to one page or two pages, and choose whether or not to include the table of contents or embed fonts.
Plain Text (TXT): Body text is exported as unformatted text. Text boxes, shapes, images, lines, tables, and charts aren’t exported. Page layout documents can’t be exported in TXT format.
Rich Text Format (RTF): Body text and tables are exported as formatted (RTF) text and tables. If the document has text boxes, shapes, lines, and charts that can be exported, they’re exported as images, and the document is exported in RTFD format. Other applications may not be able to open an RTFD file. Page layout documents can’t be exported in RTF or RTFD format.
Pages ’09: This format can be opened by Pages 4.0 through 4.3 on a Mac.
If there’s a password checkbox, do one of the following:
Set a password: Select the “Require password to open” checkbox, then enter a password. It applies only to the exported copy.
Keep the original document password: Make sure the “Require password to open” checkbox is selected.
Use a different password for the exported copy: Select the “Require password to open” checkbox, click Change Password, then set a new password.
Export the copy without a password: Deselect the “Require password to open” checkbox.
Click Next, then type a name for the document (without the filename extension, such as .pdf or .epub, which is appended to the name automatically).
Enter one or more tags (optional).
To choose where to save the exported copy, click the Where pop-up menu, choose a location, then click Export.
