iTunes will not sync Pages of Numbers files via Apps tab, File Sharing, add or drag. Searched threads here, one mentioned SDK beta2 may cause this but haven't installed it. Thought maybe give iWork.com a try. My Apple I.D. or password won't allow login. Same I.D. and pw to get here to post. Strange. Any ideas? Mac Pro 10.6.3, iPad not JB.

Today I wanted to transfer some files from my iPad 2 to a Windows 7 laptop via iTunes. Both the iTunes and iPad software are up-to-date.I started iTunes on the laptop and plugged in the iPad; in the left column in iTunes, selected the iPad under devices; among the menu choices near the top of the screen, chose Apps. Toward the bottom of the iTunes window, an area appeared called "File Sharing," with a list of apps that "can transfer documents between your iPad and this computer." When I selected GoodReader, I saw all of the documents on the iPad that I expected to see. However, when I selected either Pages or Numbers, I didn't see any of several documents I'd created in each one.Is there anything I need to do within Pages or Numbers to "save" documents and make them visible to iTunes? When finished with each document I've just been returning to the Pages or Numbers document menu, but didn't think I had to do anything to save them per se.
How do I get a permanent backup of my Keynote, Pages and Numbers files? I want to start deleting some off of my iPad to save space but am concerned that if I do so, they will also delete off of the cloud. I want to make sure I do this correctly. I would love to just send them to my dropbox, but the apps do not work with dropbox.
I have some excel files in Dropbox and am thinking of purchasing Numbers (I already have Pages) but not sure how to download my Dropbox file so I can work on it in Pages or Numbers, if I buy it. When I download the file to the ipad, I get options to open in several apps but Pages is not one of them. I do not want to buy Numbers and find I cannot download files to the app to work on.
I am currently using Pages and Numbers for Ipad. As I am currently working on these two programs and with their equivalent for PC (Word and Excel) for my research project, I would like to know how I can convert respectively the page and number format to word and xls, to use my documents both on my Ipad and my PC.
Is there a convert option in pages or numbers for IPad? otherwise, is there such an option in iwork.cim ?
if nothing of such kind exists on pages and numbers for Ipad and in iwork.com, is there any software which could do the conversion ?
I have pre-ordered a 16GB 3G version. I am now having a few reservations about the 16GB size. I want the Ipad, basically, for web surfing and gaming. We have netflix, so I will stream most of the things I would want to watch, but there will be some times when I would like to put some newer movies on it, like when going on vacation.I was toying with the idea of putting my work documents on it as well which would result in me getting Pages, Numbers, and Keynotes. My work documents are about 700 MB.
I've just updated to the latest version of iTunes. In the release notes, it says this:
Organize and sync PDF documents as books. Read PDFs with iBooks 1.1 on iPad and any iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 4
So, I've copied some PDFs to my 'Books' folder in iTunes and then synced the iPad, but nothing happens. Only the books which were already in the book library are synced, the PDFs aren't seen at all. The setting in the 'books' tab in iTunes is set to sync all books, so I don't really get what I'm missing here.
I already have GoodReader for the iPad which I use. But I just want to try reading PDFs now in the standard book reader on the iPad, to see what it's like.

I want to have an app that can edit an office file and can share files with others. Is apple's iWork suite worth the price? I can't make my decision whether to wait for "quickoffice" or "documents to go".
I have the Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and Print Central apps. I can print emails, Web pages, and other items; however, I cannot seem to print the documents from the iPad apps. Anyone find a way to print these documents?
Since the new iOS 5.1 I have been unable to add new documents to the iPad with iTunes sync (I do not use iCloud), but deletions will sync.
I have tried multiple times to add documents and they will not show up on the iPad after multiple attempts. The documents show in the File Sharing window for Numbers (and Pages) but never get to the iPad.
All the documents were to be new version replacements for the ones on the iPad which I regularly do. I have both deleted a document then addeded it as well as adding and telling it to replace the existing document. I have also tried to add documents that were not previously on the iPad, with no success. I have also created brand new documents then tried to sync them but that didn't work either.
Info:iPad, iOS 5Since the new iOS 5.1 I have been unable to add new documents to the iPad with iTunes sync (I do not use iCloud), but deletions will sync.
My Dad ordered an iPad (hasn't arrived yet) and I was going to help him set it up, but the tech specs says it needs at least OS X 10.5.8 and I have 10.4.11. Can I transfer files without syncing it with iTunes? Besides not being able to sync, is there anything else I can't do? Can I at least charge it with my Mac's USB port?
An incentive to upgrade, I know. I have Pages, Numbers, and Keynote '08, and I can't import files from them. But you can import from Office all the way back to 2003. Seems pretty shortsighted. Yet another incentive to keep using Microsoft Office on my home computer.
I was about to get on a plane. Knew there would be no network for 8 hours. Had some articles on web pages that I wanted to read. So I loaded each article into a separate window inside iPad Safari. All the text was loaded and ready to read. Then once the plane took off, I couldn't read the pages. When I switched to a page Safari tried to refresh the page, and said it couldn't because it wasn't connected to the internet.Why couldn't it remember the text that is in each of its 9 windows, so they can be read while not connected to the network? I understand why it can't navigate to new pages, but why can't it remember pages that are already loaded?
Pages and Numbers work fine on the iPad but then I try to import into the PC as Word and Excel docs (from iCloud.com) they crash or show no data when I try to open them. I am not using MS product but rather Open Office so I wonder if this is a OO issue or others with MS Word have the same issue. Occasionally the Pages will import to OO but not often.
How do I change the file icons in Pages and Numbers apps? Right now, the icon is a minature of the first page of my document, with the filename below it. Is it possible to list the filenames alphabetically? Is it possible to get a detailed list (filename, size, date modified, etc)?
So I have the Mac Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel on my MacBook pro. Since there's not an app for the iPad, I thought bout getting pages and numbers since they work in the cloud. Will they play nice with each other? Such as if I create an excel document on my computer and put it in the cloud, will it open ok on the iPad in pages?
Would that even work?? I'm not exactly sure how iCloud works especially with documents.
they both open with a blank page, I Have tried to remove both apps, but they will not delete, they just lock up the Ipad and I have to wait for it to shut down. I am not having the same problems on my IPhone 4 both apps are functioning correctly. This has only started since I upgraded to IOS 5.1
