I tried to upload a pages project file to my iPad and got a message that the file was too big (Over 30Megs as I recall)


What gives? Is this some kind of arbitrary limit.  It's a big document with lots of images...and I need it on my iPad.


Suggestions...Thoughts...Tough Luck?

    Here most of us aren't owning an iPad so it would be more efficient to ask in the "community" dedicated to Pages for iPad.

    To be the AW6 successor, iWork MUST integrate a TRUE DB, not a list organizer !

    How are you trying to "upload" the file to your iPad? It is definitely not the most intuitive of processes, but you need to connect your iPad to iTunes, click on the iPad in the source panel, click on Apps & scroll down to File Sharing, click on Pages & add the file. I haven't tried it with a Pages document & I don't have a Pages document that big to try.

    Actually it's not a "direct" transfer... I am trying to do it through iDisk (in the soon to be dead MobileMe).



    I know how to do it...I am just trying to get a handle on the apparent file size limitation. I have found other posts that talk about the 30Meg limit on pdf files...I guess that applies to any file. I do a lot of big storyboard files and the pages template is really great for that.  But one you start dropping in images it really jumps the file size.


    The net net is that it makes my iPad unusable for a lot of the work I do.

    Yvan, I can't find the iWork for iPad forum any longer. Can you?

    Since they've add support for iPhone & iPod Touch, it's now called iWork for iOS.

    That explains why I couldn't find it, nor can the iPad users. They buy the apps as Pages or Numbers, not as iWork!!!
