I installed Mountain Lion today.  I like a lot about it, but I think if Steve Jobs were alive he'd be firing all the people who worked on iCloud for Mac.  What a world of hurt.


I can't get pages documents on my Mac to synce with iCloud.  I've tried several different methods of moving documents into the Pages iCloud directory, but in all cases the file just sits there in 'waiting' mode.  Waiting for what?  Godot?


Here's a screen capture - the file on the left is the 'waiting' file:

Any suggestions are welcome.  Issues like this are why DropBox has a future... it just works.  iCloud is so much non-intuitive pain.


Please help.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    How do you "Navigate to Macintosh HD"?

    I am having the same issue, though mine appears to be a bit more complicated as all my documents except one are showing as "waiting".


    The first iPad test document was created on my iPad and the Self evaluations folder was created on my iPhone. So, at least some portion of iCloud is working somewhat properly.

    I used the steps:


    "Navigate to Macintosh HD > library > preferences > system configuration and drag the 'Networkinterfaces.plist' file to the trash and restart the mac. Now try again."


    It did not work.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated as now I can no longer access the documents with an "x" on my iMac.

    I'm having the same issue.  Many documents in "waiting" mode.  I tried deleting the plist file as mentioned in this thread, but that didn't work.  Any other ideas?

    Any idea what may be blocking the connection?


    If I go to System Preferences>iCloud>Manage>Pages, I can see all of the documents in iCloud that I am able to access on my Mac Mini, iPhone and iPad. 


    But, for whatever reason, they're not getting handed off to Pages on my iMac.

    I'm having the exact same problem.  Everything syncs fine at home, iPad, iPhone, but I can not get the files to sync on my work computer.  Reminders, calendar, contacts work, however iCloud documents will not. I'm running Authoxy (latest version).  Any suggestions?

    Yes, I'm running ML at home and at work.  I went to system config, however the 'Networkinterfaces.plist' file wasn't there. Only file in the folder is ''

    I determined ... With Apple's help ... That my problem was Intego's VirusBarrier software. Once I updated that, everything works like a charm.
