Hello,

 

This is my first try on one of these forums so please bear with me.

 

I recently got Pages for my Mac, iPhone and iPad.  In settings on the iPad I had an option to use iCloud.  When I switched this on, suddenly all my documents on my iPad showed up on my iPhone which was fantastic and helpful.

 

But I can't seem to make that work for Pages on my Mac.  There doesn't seem to be an iCloud option.

 

Can somebody please suggest what I should do?

 

Steve

    Until Apple updates the desktop versions of the iWork apps you have to use iCloud.com in a web browser or iTunes to sync files. You could also try e-mail or DropBox.

    Have you tried registering your Mac to iCloud in the Systems Preferences?

     

    Then you can Save and Open to iCloud, which just appears as a volume on your Mac.

    I'm not clear on what you mean by "registering your Mac to iCloud." I have everything except photo stream enabled & I see no way to save to iCloud. I can enable iDisk & save it, but that's not the same & iDisk is going away soon.

    I'm not in Lion right now, but when I tried it at the Apple store, iCloud turned up at the top of the hierarchy of folders on the Mac.

    iCloud doesn't do that for me.   Dropbox does.

    Don't think they were running DropBox on the AppleStore Macs.

     

    I'll restart off my Lion HDD and do some experiments.

     

    None of this should be necessary according to Apple's sales pitch.
