    Hi, this is probably very obvious but I can't figure it out.

    You know how you can add files to the iPad via iTunes? For example, you can store them in GoodReader. Also, you can use this method to get files off the iPad, like from Pages. Well, how do you actually delete these files from the iPad? In iTunes I can only find the option to add new files, or to save the files from the iPad to the computer. Doing so doesn't delete the original still on the iPad.

    How do I get rid of them?

    EDIT: Just figured it out, seconds after posting! Select the file, then click backspace. Seems odd that there isn't a delete button or a menu when right-clicking. Not very intuitive.

    Thank you for that, I actually was wondering the same thing and it didn't occur to me to hit the back space button.
