Customer Question

I can't transfer Pages documents from my iPad to my iMac. I've tried the usual, correct way to do it. When I click the Pages app icon in iTunes, no documents come up.

Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is Michelle and I am excited to get started with you.

The best way to transfer documents from your iPad from your computer is iCloud. Are you currently signed into icloud on your iPad?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not even sure if I have an iCloud account. How do I check? I know my calendars all snyc. But this still doesn't answer the question, why couldn't I transfer the files directly?
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.
Sure, I can show you both ways. First on your ipad, go to settings and click on icloud. You should be signed in using your Apple ID. If you are not signed in, sign in using your apple ID and password. Then on your mac, make sure you are signed in too. On your computer, click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and click on system preferences. Under internet and wireless, click on icloud and make sure you are signed in. If not go ahead and sign in.

If you rather transfer your documents without using icloud. First make sure within itunes on your computer that icloud is not checked within itunes. To check, open itunes on your computer, Under backups you will see the option to backup to icloud or itunes.

Also, if you still do not want to use icloud, you can directly transfer your pages documents by click on the document you wish to transfer "On your iPad". Click on EDIT in the upper left corner. Select the document syou wish to transfer. Click on the square with arrow icon in the upper left corner and choose "Copy to iTunes" Your document will then copy

IF you choose to transfer your documents via your ipad, you can only transfer them one at a time. If you wish to use icloud, you will have the advantage of seeing and transferring all of your documents at once

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So I still have to do them one at a time? I assumed that the documents could ALL be transferred, synced, at once. Is there a way to do this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
And I still haven't figured out the iCloud way. I bought a couple of eBooks to try to understand it a little better.
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.
Yes. You can do this with icloud as mentioned earlier. You will like this option. First make sure icloud is enabled on your ipad. To do this,
1. Click on settings on your iPad
2. Click on iCloud
3.If you are signed in, you will see your email listed in the accounts field anad a serieris of applications listed like Mail, contacts, calendar. etc.
4. If you are not signed in, go ahead and sign using your apple ID and password
5. Then on your computer, you will need to sign in to so your ipad and computer can sync with each other. To do this
6. Click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and choose System Preferences
7. Click on iCloud
8. If you are signed in, you will also see a series of applications with checked boxes. If you are not signed in, sign in using your apple id and password.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
