I think I have hit an ugly bug... Here is the scenario:

 

- I take/create a sheet on numbers on my Mac (running Mountain Lion with Numbers '09, version 2.3 (554))

- I save this in iCloud, syncing with numbers on my iPad (iPad mini, running the latest version of IOS)

- I reopen the file on my Mac, I add a few rows, I then copy a bunch of rows somewhere else, and paste it in the newly inserted rows.

 

Then something goes terribly wrong. The paste does not occur; in some cases numbers hang, in some cases it destroys the full sheet. I cannot even revert, it gives me an error message whereby 'the file cannot be opened', or something similar.

 

Put it another way: the only way I can use icloud syncing for my number sheets is if I do not structurally change the sheet. :-(

    Ivan,

     

    I'm sorry you are having trouble, but there's nothing in your post that convinces me that the problem isn't with the "copy a bunch of rows somewhere else, and paste it in the newly inserted rows" action rather than the iCloud connection.

    Jerry,

     

    you are right, it was not clear. I did the same action on a file that did not go through icloud, and things were fine. I tried it with two different files.

     

    To make it clear, here are the flows

     

    A on Mac -> duplicate to C -> save it on icloud -> look at it, change some value on iPad -> edit it on Mac with copy paste -> fail

     

    A on Mac -> duplicate to M -> edit on Mac with copy paste -> works

     

    I duly update systems and apps every time I am notified both on Mac and on my iPad Mini.

    Ivan,

     

    There are differences in the two Numbers apps, but I can't say what your trouble may be. I have created documents in the iOS version and edited on the Mac, and reopened on the iOS device, and vice versa without difficulty.

     

    My documents did not include any web clippings, which are a big unknown here.
