I like to write in rich text with textedit and then do more complicated formatting tasks with Pages 5.0. However, Pages doesn't open rich text. To get the text into pages I either have to copy and paste, or laboriously duplicate the file in textedit and save it as .doc/docx. On top of that, I then have re-save to file in the .pages format to be able to edit it with Pages.
What I would like is a simple automator workflow to save the foremost textedit .rtf file to a .doc/.docx format, which can then be opened by Pages and saved to the .pages format.
I think there is a built-in program called textutil which could be used in the workflow.
