    All I was trying to say in my first posting was that if you click on the iCloud dialog box, it will dispaly other save to locations.

     

     

    But the OP aknowledged knowing that in her original post.  You answered a question that wsan't being asked.

     

    That's what confused me.

    But, if you have that iCloud preference checked, you won't be able to access iCloud at all.

     

     

    Yes. I know that, but I thought you didn't.  But I now understand that you do.

    Yes, I'm afraid that I didn't read the OP's original posting all that closely. Sorry for the confusion.

    You can run this on the command line:

     

      defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSDocumentSaveNewDocumentsToCloud -bool false

    If you try to stop iCloud saving Pages I get this result.

     

    Now, why should it erase docs I have on my Mac just because i don't want them saved to the Cloud. How does that make any sense?

    Becuase it's all or nothing. Either you want to use iCloud for Documents and Data or you do not. Unchecking the box says, "I don't want to use iCloud for Documents and Data." Therefore, it warns you before it deletes the data it already has stored. There isn't an option to "turn off" Documents and Data for a period of time; it is either on or it is off.

    BUT, why should it delete docs on my MAC, I didn't check "Stop saving to my mac". In the world of Apple I expect it to offer to delete my iCloud docs, right?

    Because you're not turning off iCloud. You are not using iCloud on that Mac. The stuff in iCloud can still be accessed from other devices and from the Web interface (www.icloud.com).

    If you want them on your Mac, make copies of the synced documents or download them from iCloud after the fact.

    I turned it off, the files on my Mac were not erased, and I am longer offerred to save to the iCloud as a default.

    It doesn't even come up.

     

    thanks all,

    John
