"I encrypted a Pages document and (it is normal) I forgot it. Of course, I don't need to tell that my document was pretty important for me. Do you think it would be any way to open my document?
My first idea was that by typing a wrong password more than 3 times, a popup window would propose me to help founding since the file is encrypted. But no.
I also thought I would be able to "open content of package" but this option is not displayed since the file is encrypted.
Finally my last hope was that the password would be saved in my iCloud account (since I have pages and documents on the iCloud, seemed logical), but again, no.
So, any ideas?"
