    Hi, this is my first time paying in this forum and I apologise if there is already a threat about this.
    I recently started my Law Degree a University, and I use my IPad and the Pages app as a way of taking notes
    I find this to be an efficient way of doing so, apart from the fact that I cannot organize my documents into folders. This makes finding a certain document on a certain lecture or tutorial difficult to locate as I have to scroll through all my documents. Is there a way I can create folders which organise my documents? For example one of my subjects is called "Contracts", I would like to place all my document containing notes for this subject into that folder making them easy to find and access. I have downloaded various apps which claim to do what I want, but don't allow me to import documents from pages, rendering them useless
    If anybody could help me and tell me a way to organize my Pages documents it folders I would be very thankful :)

    Long press one document until all documents start to jiggle. You can then drag one on top of another to create folders.

    Unfortunately works only on the iDevice; using a windows PC and icloud.com it is not possible (yet, or not found that option yet)

    I am just starting with pages on my iPad2 and followed the instructions to create a folder and it worked last week. Today I tried to combine 2 documents using the above method and they would not - just kept sliding apart. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Hellsbells, sometimes when you come in from the left hand side the icon moves over, this is possibly the iPad thinking you want to reorganise rather than incorporate.
    Keep trying from different sides and see if that helps
