    Hi,
    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)?
    Thanks,
    AP

    It is not possible to change the display mode, nor can you change what the icon looks like (other than to change the first page). I suppose if it is important what the icon looks like, you could use the fist page as a cover page (graphics and text as you'd like the icon to appear).

    The only way I know of to check your file size is to go into Settings > General > Usage; then select the app under Documents & Data. There you will see a list of all the files in that app and their size. You can even delete files, though I recommend doing that from within the app itself.
