I started working with Text Edit documents for the first time in Mountain Lion.   I found something a bit surprising but it could be that I am not properly saving text edit documents to the iCloud. 


I am using OSX 10.8.  I am signed up for iCloud and have the documents & data box checked in the iCloud Preference Pane.  Text Edit is an iCloud savvy document. 


I moved a Text Edit document into the Cloud by dragging it into the Open dialog pane in Text Edit.   Thereafter I could open it and edit it in iCloud view of Text Edit's open dialog.  


The surprise came when I signed into and could not find the document.  Apple's knowledge article tells you to sign in and click the iWork icon to access your files.   While I understand that non-apple files such as Word would not show up there I thought that text edit files could be accessed from the internet on any computer.  


Will only Apple iWork files appear on or is there something I am missing about how to save Text Edit documents show they can be accessed from


Thanks in advance for your advice.

You can only read them in another Mac with 10.8. iCloud page is for iWork documents, and you need iWork '09 (10.8) or iWork for iOS to use it
