iCloud, documents editing on iPad and windows pc confusion
Hi, forgive me if this has been asked before, I have searched the complete forum but cannot find a relevant answer.
My partner does all her work on her PC, we have just purchased an iPad so that she can do her work on the fly as it were. iCloud is turned on in the iPad settings, we have downloaded pages for iPad and documents are uploaded to
the cloud as they should. My problem is the ease of use for her. What we want to do is, use an existing document
created in word, save to the cloud, open and edit on the iPad, get home open it up in word, edit it, and save it back
to the cloud. The way it seems to work is once the document is in the cloud, windows uses iCloud control panel to
download the file, we then tell iCloud to open it in word, great so far. We then make any adjustments/edits.
Here is when the problem starts, we ideally would like then to save the edited document directly to the cloud, but the only options are to save on the local pc. We then have to upload this file to the cloud which means that we now have 2 versions of the same document, 1 the original and the other the latest edited version. Is there a way to save
directly to the cloud overwriting the original downloaded file? Ideally we would like it to work like Dropbox, which has its own folder on the pc you then go into this folder on any pc by logging to our account, make adjustments save to
the Dropbox folder and it over writes the original.
Thanks in advance.
