    Hi,

    I used text edit to save a file to iCloud on my iMac and it is not showing up in text edit on my macbook.

    When I go to System Preferences> iCloud> Manage> Texedit
    I can see my file.

    Any idea on how I can download this text file? My iMac is being repaired and I don't have access to it right now.

    Also, its not showing up in the iCloud folder in Library.

    Thanks!

    Any thoughts?

    It seems textedit on my macbook is storing the files completely different iCloud than my iMac was.

    Are you SURE you saved it to iCloud? You can still save it on the disk itself.

    Yes because if I go to iCloud in system preferences and go to manage I can see the file there as part of TextEdit.

    What version of OS X are you on? I just got a new terms of service notice when I went to go manage my iCloud?

    Remember that there's the iCloud tab and then On My Mac.

    10.8.5

    Yup I know that there is both. I normally save to my mac, but purposely saved this file to iCloud.

    Here is the file showing up in iCloud (metrics.rtf) along with a couple other random text files. These were all saved on my iMac

    And here is what text edit sees on my macbook.

    Maybe.. Are you at least able to see the files? for me the files don't even show up.

    I just got my iMac back, and the files show up on "icloud" when viewing on the iMac.

    Weird. I guess I'll just stick with dropbox from now on.
