    I've noticed that upon first starting iWork in Yosemite or iOS 8, your iCloud documents get duplicated in a new directory exclusively for 10.10 and iOS 8. Changes in documents in iOS 7/ Maverick after this point do not get copied over to this replicate directory. There is NO syncing between the two directories!

    It appears that as soon as you start using iWork on one single 10.10 or iOS8 device, you must stop using icloud on any non-yosemite/iOS 8 device. :(

    So, it works if I'm on iOS8 and 10.10?

    Hmm... I was hoping I would have to upgrade my iPad to the beta. Hmm.

    It works if you upgrade everything you have to Yosemite/ios 8. Otherwise you end up having two separate out of sync "iCloud documents".

    I did open iWork on Yosemite once and now I'm having a bad feeling about this, especially as I'll have to use Maverick on my work computer. Given Apple's track record with web services, I doubt they'd do another sync of documents for you once the 10.10/ios 8 goes final.
