    Hi,
    I'm not sure if I'm using well iCloud with my iWorks files. Let me show you an example.
    On my iPad I created a Number document called "rutine.numbers". On my MBP I can see that file on Safari (icloud.com/iwork) and I downloaded it to edit the file with Numbers for Mac. I'm done with the edition and now I want to see the changes on my iPad and other Apple devices. Now what? Should I export the document? Share it with iWork?
    At the moment I'm saving the file on Desktop and I use the drag and drop function to replace it on Safari (icloud.com/iwork). But now I have 2 documents. One on my iPad and one on my Desktop. :(
    My question is, am I doing something wrong or this is how iCloud and iWorks work?
    Thanks,

    To see your changed document on your ipad you need to upload the document back to icloud. You can do this by opening www.icloud.com and then going to the iwork section, numbers and then just drag your document from your desktop to the browser. At this moment Apple has not updated the iwork OSX apps to save or open documents directly with icloud so this manual method is the only option.

    iWork.com is a site where you can place documents to share with other people, let them read or edit and place back for you to pick up, sort of online collaboration instead of emailing a document back and forth.

    Thanks for your answer. So, I'm doing everything properly. We will have to wait an update that allow us to open/save files with iWork (mac) from iCloud. :cool:
