iCloud not Synchronising Pages, Numbers or Keynote?

      No Comments on iCloud not Synchronising Pages, Numbers or Keynote?

My first try at using iCloud to sync documents between my iPad and iPhone failed. I had created a spreadsheet on the iPad that I wanted to reference on the iPhone whilst out shopping, and when I cranked up Numbers for a look, it wasn’t present. None of the iPad documents were showing for Numbers, although a test Pages document was there.

I found several threads with mentions of syncing failing, and some people saying that on each device you need to go to Settings > iCloud > Documents & Data and turning it off, then back on. I did this but with no success.

However, if you go back to Settings and then scroll down to the Numbers (or Pages, or Keynote) settings, you will see there is a Use iCloud option, which my be disabled. Turn this on for each app, and syncing will be restored. I think this is an omission on Apples part to have both system wide and in-app settings for iCloud, and I would expect this in-app setting to disappear in future versions.
