I recently purchased three minis and a MacBook Air. They are all running Lion and have iCloud set up on all machines and it is syncing calendar, contacts and notes great. However, although all machines have documents checked in the iCloud set up, my Pages documents will not automatically upload. Further, even if I go to iCloud.com and access my account, I can manually upload the documents but then cannot download them. I would really like to use iCloud to sync the documents on all machines.

I have called Apple Support and was told two weeks ago that iCloud would not sync documents created on the Minis or AirBook, only documents created on an iPad or iPhone. I called today however, and was told that iCloud would sync the Pages documents regardless of the machine on which they were created as long as that machine is iCloud enabled.

Please help!, anyone! I feel like I am dealing with PCs again!

Thanks in advance for your help!

That is not what I wanted to hear. Is there any way to network two of the mini's, that are in separate locations, into the wireless network at my office? I am dealing with mostly word processing but need each person/machine to be able to access and change the documents. Any suggestions?

The free App DropBox can do what you need.

I use iCloud between my MacMini at work, iMac at home, iPhone & iPad, however I use Dropbox right now for my documents as iCloud hasn't matured to the point of Dropbox yet. In time it probably will, but as it is I have 5gb with Apple and 3gb with Dropbox all for free.
