    This gets even weirder. I tried to email the file concerned to myself as a .pdf, but instead of opening up the email app and selected email Document - .pdf file, my Pages app just crashed.

    I've also tried downloading from icloud.com onto my Macbook Pro (Mountain Lion) too, but i still only get the first 1/4 page worth of notes. The rest are blank.

    Also tried accessing the same file on my MacBook Pro with Pages also installed, but again, i just see 1/4 page of notes and the rest of the pages that follow are blank.

    However the thumbnail image of my document shows that the first page is completely filled with text. So the full notes must be hiding somewhere - just that i somehow cannot access them. Strange.

    Never have had these problems with Pages previously before this.

    Last weekend, I had to attend an important seminar, and I took some notes on the iPad's Pages app. My Pages app version is 1.71 (741).

    However when I tried to access the notes again, I discovered that the Pages app didn't autosave my notes properly.

    I didn't actually close the Pages app after I had finished the seminar yesterday. I simply put my iPad into standby mode, with the Pages app still running, and put it into my bag.

    The latest time of autosaving was supposed to have been at about half past six in the evening yesterday - the time that the seminar had finished yesterday.

    When I opened the iPad, I discovered that my notes had NOT been saved properly. Only the first one quarter of a page had been saved. The rest of my notes were completely gone. (I took roughly about six pages of notes altogether).

    Is there any way to retrieve the notes that I had taken, and hopefully solve this issue with my iPad's Pages not autosaving the notes properly?

    Please could someone help, because the notes are important and I really have no idea what to do.
    After re-reading your post-part of the problem may be the version your iPad is running on: 5.1.1.

    We are now at ios 6.1 and Pages has gone through at least 2 updates that I remember.

    Addendum: I just checked my Pages app and it is on on 1.7.1 also. It also says it will run on iOS 5.1.1 or later. So I am even more perplexed, but I am wondering if the crashes are related to the older version OS you are running for other apps that have been optimized for 6.0?

    Is there anyone else who may be able to verify if this could be so?

    Do you think the problems are because i'm using Pages with an older IOS and there's compatibility issues?

    So the notes cannot be retrieved, in that case, or...?
    You didn't see my edit to my post above...that is what shows on my Pages app as well in terms of version-it includes 5.1.1 as part of the OS to run on.

    It sounds like we have exhausted everything that we could think of. Unless anyone else thinks of anything, I am afraid that your notes may have been lost.

    My apologies, I saw the edit after i posted, actually..

    Though as i said, i do find it weird at the same time, that the thumbnail always shows the document (the first page at least) in its entirety - and not just 1/4 page of text.. it's the case for both ipad and macbook...

    I know...I find it very odd myself. I have used Pages for many docs with multiple pages and have put the iPad on sleep mode or have gone to another app before coming back to it and the doc shows up.
