I bought Pages for my Mac. I want to save my documents to iCloud. I do not have an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. So no iOS app. I have Lion. I read this:


  1. Use your computer’s browser to visit the iCloud website at, and then sign in using your Apple ID.
  2. Click iWork, and then click Pages.
  3. Click the Action menu (looks like a gear) at the top-right of the browser window, and then choose Upload Document from the menu.
  4. Locate and select the document you want to copy to iCloud, and then click Choose.A copy of the document is saved to iCloud. If you edit the original document on your Mac, the edits aren’t reflected in the copy that’s stored in iCloud until you save the edited version to iCloud again.

There's only one problem with that: step 3. When I select iWork, then click Pages, I just get a page that says "learn more" and "get pages". There is no Action menu. Only the cloud for the home page. No little gear. So. . . .why not? And how do I do this then?

Pages and iCloud, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    To be able to access the iWork pages at, you need the iWork apps for iOS installed on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Or you need to be using the latest versions of iWork for Mac on OS X 10.8.2


    So, you'll need to update to Mountain Lion.
