    Hey there QuJing,

     

    It sounds like you have a Keynote presentation that you would like to save to iCloud, to open on your iPad. You can do that in the File menu:

     

    On your Mac, open the presentation you want to appear in iCloud, then do either of the following:

    • For an already-saved presentation: Choose File > Move To, then choose iCloud from the Where pop-up menu.
    • For an unsaved presentation: Choose File > Save, then choose iCloud from the Where pop-up menu.

    Thanks for replying.

    But there are still gaps in my understanding.

    On iMac, in Keynote, file, save as, there is no iCloud choice.

    In iCloud preferences, I have only Preview and TextEdit for documents.
