I use Pages and iCloud.  Right now I have a bunch of documents in iCloud.  Is it possible to set up files to organize these documents, or is iCloud just sort of a 'catch-all' for documents?

 

Thanks

No, there is no way to introduce a folder structure to the way that iWork documents are stored in iCloud.

 

I tend only to see iWork documents in iCloud as work in progress, once my documents are complete, I remove them and store them in my filing system on my mac.

    I was hoping to use it as a storage area, like Dropbox or Box.net.  Oh well!

     

    Thanks for the answer.

    Even should you be able to put your documents in a folder structure, I'd be inclined to advise not using it as long term storage.

     

    Indeed even for short term storage, I'd recommend that you make regular back ups of your work in progress by saving to iTunes.

    I love the way iCloud syncs everything between iDevices, and hope Mountain Lion and iOS6 will blend all the Apple products into a workable sync. As it stands now, Works on Macs is still a stand-alone situation, even though the iDevices can sync iWorks among themselves.
