Hello everyone,


I'm pleased that textEdit and Preview docs can now be saved directly from my iMac to iCloud, but they are apparently not accessible to my iPad or viewable in Safari.  Just want to confirm that I am not missing something.


When I log into iCloud on Safari, the only icon to select for documents is iWork, and it does not display the textEdit and Preview docs that I have uploaded.  There is no indication in Safari that the docs are there.  Likewise, there is no obvious way to access textEdit and Preview docs that are stored on iCloud from my iPad.  But unlike Safari, the documents are listed in the Storage and Backup section of iCloud settings on the iPad.  I just have no way to select and view them.
