I've been using my iPad2 with a USB keyboard and Pages app, which is far more useful than I had imagined it would be. Not having a wireless printer, I've been sending a copy of my writing to my E-mail and this works fine. Two questions: (1) One option is to save the file to iTunes and I tried this also but now I can't find the file. Where is it? (2) Are all files automatically saved when the Pages app is closed? It seems this way but I'm used to the "save as" command on word processing programs. Thanks to all.

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.1

    Save to iTunes puts it in a sharing directory which can be accessed when connected to iTunes.

    It is somewhere on the computer mabye  under apps at the bottom.

    Try the open in command in pages and install an app like Dropbox.

    Your files are saved in Pages as you work within the documents. You do not have to worry about using a Save or Save As command. It is all done automatically.


    Pages is a file sharing app and you can send and store your documents to iTunes when you sync - and from there you can save the document to a folder on your computer or you can simply drag the document from the file sharing window not the desktop.



    You can read this to learn more about File Sharing. This explains it in detail.




    The short and sweet version is that when you have a document open in Pages, you tap on the wrench icon in the upper right, then tap Share and Print. In the next window tap - Send to iTunes. A window will pop up that let's you select the format - PDF, Word or Pages. Then next time that you sync your iPad, click on the Apps tab in iTunes, scroll down to the file sharing apps list, click on Pages - and you will see the document that you "Sent to iTunes" in that file sharing window.
