Use the iWork Document Manager in iPad

|

Before getting into the specifics of Pages (and, later, other word processors), I want to take a moment to talk about a feature common to all three iWork apps: a screen Apple calls the Document Manager, although that term doesn’t appear in the apps themselves. This is where the app lists all the documents you’ve created or imported, and where you can open, rename, delete, or export them. The Document Manager appears automatically the first time you open any iWork app, and you can tell that’s what you’re looking at because it has a gray fabric-like background and large images of the first page of each of your documents.

To display the Document Manager:
• Pages: Tap the My Pages button in the upper-left of the screen.

• Numbers: Tap the My Spreadsheets button in the upper-left of the screen.

• Keynote: Tap the My Presentations button in the upper-left of the screen.

From within the Document Manager, tap any document to open it; swipe left or right to see other documents.

You can also do the following:
• Create a new document: Tap New Document (Pages), New Spreadsheet (Numbers), or New Presentation (Keynote).

• Delete the current document: Tap the Trash icon.

• Duplicate the current document: Tap the plus icon and then tap Duplicate Document.

• Export the current document: Tap the Action icon and then do one of the following, depending on where you want the document to go:
- Email: Tap Email Document.
- iWork.com: Tap Share via iWork.com. (See the sidebar Sharing Documents via iWork.com for more details.)
- Through iTunes to your computer: Tap Send to iTunes, and then tap a file format. (For further instructions, read Copy Documents via iTunes.)
- iDisk: Tap Copy to iDisk, tap a file format, navigate to the folder where you want to store the document, and tap Copy.
- A WebDAV server: Tap Copy to WebDAV. The first time that you connect to a WebDAV server with iWork, you must fill in the server address and your credentials, and tap Sign In. Then tap a file format, navigate to the folder where you want to store the document, and tap Copy. Later, iWork will automatically reconnect to the same WebDAV server so that you can skip the sign-in step; to switch servers, tap Sign Out and enter the new server’s information.

• Import a document: Tap the Import icon and then do one of the following, depending on where the document is coming from:
- Your computer through iTunes: Tap Copy from iTunes and then tap the document name.
- iDisk: Tap Copy from iDisk, navigate to the document, and then tap the document name.
- A WebDAV server: Tap Copy from WebDAV and (as when exporting documents) sign in if necessary. Then navigate to the document and tap the document name.

Dropbox via WebDAV: A clever service called DropDAV acts as a bridge between Dropbox and iWork, by giving you access to documents in your Dropbox via WebDAV. After signing up for an account, all you need to do is tap Copy from WebDAV and enter https://dav.dropdav.com and your Dropbox credentials. DropDAV is free for those with free Dropbox accounts; if you’ve paid for additional Dropbox storage, DropDAV charges either $3 (for 50 GB Dropbox accounts) or $6 (for 100 GB accounts) per month. http://dropdav.com/
