    Anyone using Pages exclusively in iCloud? How are you finding it?

    I was hoping to use Pages and iCloud too

    So Far I have set everything up and it seems to work except for 1 device.
    If anyone has an answer, please let me know.

    So far, I can create a document on my iMac, my Mac Pro and my iPad.
    The files save fine, and I can alter them from other devices.

    I also have a Macbook Air. I can not alter files in the cloud with the air.

    I can see and open files in icloud bout when I save them, they are only updated on the Air, not icloud.

    I can also create files on MBAir, but they are not available on other devices, only the Air.

    Any Help would be appreciated.

    Pages and Numbers are the only good experience I've had so far with iCloud.

    I've been testing it with just one of my Macs, my 2012 MBA, to monitor the progress that Apple is making. Far from ready for prime time in my opinion, that's not a criticism, just sharing my experience.

    I prefer to take a positive, yet patient approach, since in my case iCloud in no way performs up to the way it was presented to us. Overly zealous, in typical Apple fashion, at some point I'd like to see the functionality catch up to the hype. In a perfect world I would like to use it for most things I use a cloud for.

    In the mean time for my mainstream MBP's that I use for work and personal, I'm using other more flexible and reliable cloud solutions.

    I look forward to the day that iCloud lives up to it's billing, since as a serious Apple enthusiast, it would be nice to be able to speak highly of iCloud.

    Having the same problem: can save to the Mac but not to the Cloud. There is an option to move to the cloud from the title bar but not in the Save section....

    No issue with the save function mentioned above?
