Solved: Problem with Pages and iCloud

Q: Solved: Problem with Pages and iCloud

I have Pages loaded on my iPad and iPod Touch and am having problems in getting documents to sync between the two devices via iCloud.
Both devices are running iOS 5.
If I create a document on say my iPod Touch it saves the document which I can see ( a blue status bar moves a cross the document) also the top right portion of the document peels back showing an arrow which I assume meant that the document was being backed up to the Cloud.

When I fire up Pages on my iPad however no document is there. I'm not sure what is going wrong. If I create the document on my iPad to start with then,as before, it does not sync accross to my iPod Touch. In addition when saving documents on iPad there is not the blue status bar as there was when saving on iPod Touch.

Is there something I am doing wrong as everything I have seen seems to show that the syncing of documents in Pages via the Cloud should be automatic. I should also say that I have also set Pages to work via the Cloud in the settings menu of both devices.

I convert a lot of web page articles to PDF files using Acrobat Pro 6.0. Occasionally the Acrobat icon in my toolbar won't even light up. If I save the page as a MHTML file and open it, the Acrobat icon is active but won't complete the conversion. Does anyone know if some newspaper pages are protected from copying with Acrobat? This happened to me this morning when I tried to convert a WSJ article (I'm a subscriber) to a PDF file.

I’m having trouble accessing certain web sites and wonder if someone could help me? “Simple” web sites like Craigslist are no problem. It’s more complicated sites, such as Yahoo Mail, that don’t download properly. My browser, Firefox, partially downloads the page, then quits after a second or two. (Internet Explorer 7.0.6000.16575CO won’t even try to download most sites.) Sometimes if I hit “reload” several times, the page (like this one) will download completely. But some sites, like Yahoo Mail, just won’t download right no matter how many times I try to refresh.

I called my ISP, Cox, twice, and both times was told I had a Java problem, so they couldn’t help me. I uninstalled Java and reinstalled the latest version, 1.6.0_03-b05, to no avail. I cleaned out all my personal data, including cache and cookies. I’ve also run virus, spyware, and adware scans, and nothing evil turned up. BTW I’m running Vista Home Premium.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? Thank you so much in advance for any assistance, and Happy New Year!

I have just installed angry birds from the Chrome store. It works great the first time I go to play it. Then, when I close it out and I think it only happens when I restart my computer for the first time afterwards, it stops loading anymore. Now, when I go to Angry Birds to play it, it starts to load the page, but then it just goes to a white box and nothing happens. I can hear the music playing in the background as if it's running, but I can't see anything on the screen. If I run Angry Birds in incognito mode, it works, but it will not save my progress this way which is unsatisfactory. Also, if I uninstall and reinstall Chrome, it will work again, until I shut my computer off again. There are also other webpages I have found that have this same behavior that aren't games. For example, the mlb website Phillies Schedule | Schedule does the exact same thing where it starts to load, and then just goes to a white screen. Anybody know why this is happening and how to fix it?

I would have posted this in the Firefox forum, but it also happens in IE, which tells me it's not caused by the browser (most likely). If there is a more appropriate section for this topic, I will gladly have it there.

I first noticed this problem here at TSF. Page 2 of a thread I was in was displaying improperly, with the main content elements stretched hundreds of thousands of pixels wide (used Firebug addon to get the width). See figure A. Also notice the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom. You can tell by its tiny size that the page is widened a LOT.

Also note the "borders" around certain elements, such as post quotes, are now shifted to the left, overlapping the left sidebar and extending beyond the left of the page.


I at first thought this to possibly be a TSF error, until I also noticed it in Gmail. See Figure B. It's the same problem, and the weird part is, it ONLY happens in that specific conversation. Even more specifically, a specific message within that specific conversation. To see how Gmail is supposed to look, see Figure C. (Please note that the smudged parts were intentional).



This is all quite strange. So far I've only noticed it on that particular thread of TSF and in that particular conversation in Gmail. The two seem very unrelated. It also occurs in both Firefox and IE (I have no other browsers).

If I see it somewhere else, I'll note it in this thread.

Up til now, I have been happily syncing my iPhone4 and iPad2 with MS Outlook 2007 via my PC x iTunes.

Somehow, I recall choosing an option somewhere to use iCloud "cos it sounded OK" but now when I try to sync the devices on iTunes, it tells me that I cannot do this anymore as it is being done on iCloud and I will have duplicate contacts and all sorts of dire problems.

At the risk of being old fashioned, how do I get rid of iCloud and go back to the procedure first mentioned in Para one ..........?

I feel much happier with it and not having vast numbers of contacts, appontments etc. would prefer to leave iCloud out of it for the moment.

How do I do this thanks?

I'm trying to install iCloud on my Windows XP Pro (SP3) PC. Officially it's supported only for Vista and later, but this hack is widely claimed to work:1. Open iCloudSetup.exe file and unzip its files including iCloud.msi2. Navigate to and open the iCloud.msi with Orca.3. In the left table select LaunchCondition. Then change in the right table ?VersionNT> = 600? to ?VersionNT> = 200? and Save.4. Run modified iCloud.msi and install.5. Run iCloud Control Panel, located in the Windows Control Panel, and set up as you want.I tried that promising solution in vain.

I switched from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro, so I could utilize the iCloud that comes with my iPad & iPhone 5. It was said I could sync all the devices; which I can, but the colors invert when I click "Open iCloud Control Panel".
The colors invert after the monitor changes to another phase & the screen flips. I went through the trouble shooting prompts & I thought that it was going to clear up. It didn't.
I know that it wants me to setup Outlook, but I already use Thunderbird?
What advice can anyone give from this forum.

Still no bites?
I went ahead & called the maker of the video card, NVIDIA & they said it was an OS problem. Of course Microsoft said it was Apple's & then not to be the only one fixing the blame, Apple said it was a Microsoft problem.
Anyway, took it to the local computer nerd store & they say that iCloud is changing the resolution. The service tech went right in & adjusted the resolution through iCloud, but when clicked on again, the resolution & the colors invert.
I wonder if it makes a difference of what browser that is used, to download iCloud on?

My boss and I used very successfully for his calendar and contacts, but awhile back when he upgraded he was moved to, and I can no longer access the site from work. It is not blocked by the firewall, and the browser (firefox) works fine going to any other site. The error I get is: The proxy server is refusing connections.
Nothing has been changed on the browser settings and the browser works fine otherwise. I'm lost without access to this site.

A:Can't access

I can get to that site with both my Opera and Firefox browsers but, when I do, it makes it clear that I will need a device (iphone or iPad?) with iOS 5 or a Mac computer with OS X to setup my Apple ID and access it.

I don't know anything about proxy servers but it sounds like it is something your workplace setup or ISP may be using. Is there anyone in your office that deals with techie stuff who might be able to help?

Another possibility is that using the Windows version of Apple's Safari browser might help, but that's complete guesswork on my part; (although it does state that it works with iCloud).

Is there a way (when I send a link to someone so they can download my files) that they can download a whole folder, rather than image by image. I've made a folder and put photos in that folder. I sent a link to myself to see how it worked. When the link is clicked, it takes me to the images (rather than just the folder itself). From there, I can only download each one, one by one. This would take quite some time to do as most of what I'm uploading in a folder has as many as 50 images/photos.

Any feedback is welcome! Thank you!

I have windows 7 and outlook 2010 on a PC. When linking to icloud and enabling it to synch with icloud, icloud took the contacts off my computer (at least it seems that way). In trying to resolve the issue and talking with Apple and Omnitech, a variety of solutions were tried. I now have all my contacts in the right categories showing up on my PC, but it appears that they are not on the PC but in the cloud. My goal is to copy one of my categories, mailing list, into a  new separate folder in the folder list in order to use it to merge with Word and make labels. In the past, I could right click on the mailing list category and drag it to the new folder that I created. It would then ask if I wanted it to copy the file there or move it. I copied it to the new folder and then was able to merge it with word. Currently, when I try to drag the file to the folder, it indicates that this action can not be done. It appears to me that the reason this is occurring is that the contact file is in the cloud not on the computer.  ?? I would like to create a file with my contacts on the PC with the contacts in the right categories and not duplicating what is currently showing up from the cloud. I believe once I do this I will again be able to copy the category to the new folder.

Yep, looked everywhere on TSG but can't seem to find a suite dedicated to iCloud issues - this is as close as I can get but apologies if it is off subject here ..................... more than happy to move it if one of the Mods can tell me where to go!

Anyhow, just a quick post to express my total lack of understanding with iCloud - part of a big club from what I can see on Google!

I use iCloud for all my calendars and have been using the different colour calendars for specific events etc. such as say "red" for birthdays. "green" for appointments and to date have had no problems.

After a recent windows update (I think) I now find that ALL the colour calendars are visible on the left hand side of the calendar page when viewed on Outlook 07 with every one of the seven colours all having a tick in the box inside them and therefore of course displaying every one of them on the main viewing window on the right side.

I don't even have my default "calendar" anymore though the "anniversaries" calendar shows everything I have scheduled. Naturally, as I "uncheck" each colour calendar on the left, those on the right are removed PLUS their contents from what appears to be my default calendar (anniversaries)

How do I get back to just having the one basic iCloud calendar showing whilst still having the coloured ones in the background should I wish to just pull ONE of them up?

This does not appear a great explanation but hope... Read more

I am running outlook 7 windows 7.

In the past, the problem was that the send date above emails in the to send folder said "none" and the email topic was bold faced, and not regular in italics. It will not send.

I resolved this [and SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN IT DOWN] by going to the trust center and I believe disabling the icloud item.

HOWEVER: subsequent to all this, I finally figured out how to sync my outlook calender [not outlook contacts, cloud contacts and iphone5 phone contacts are synced.

HOWEVER, the original problem is back, and windows shows that only calendar in icloud is synced, not "calendar" and not whatever "calendar from icloud in icloud" [just uncheck both and I eliminate dupes]

IF i start screwing around in the trust center and disabling the "icloud outlook ad-in", which I know played a role in getting the send to work, will I eliminate that "calendar in icloud" that continues to works so well? And if so, how do I get it back to sync with iphone 5?

A:How to fix a send issue WITHOUT screwing up my sync to icloud

Like you I am running Outlook 7 under Windows 7, 64 bit, and have version 3, the latest, for the iCloud control panel. And, like you, I have long ceased to attempt any kind of sync for anything other than the calender. If you go into the trust center and disable the icloud add in outlook will cease to sync with icloud. Indeed, only yesterday I ran a test: I added an appointment to my iphone and it did not appear on my outlook calendar. I had disabled the icloud add in before it was the only way to get anything to send from the outbox. As soon as I re enabled it the appointment appeared, only now I had the email issue.

It is interesting to note that when I went into the account settings in outlook to be sure the problem wasn't there, I was able to send the test message without issue, so it have to believe that all my pop server numbers are correct and the problem lies with the add in. Apple support blame Microsoft, who blames Apple. As with this entry, no almost a year old, I have never gotten any answers from this forum.

Should you have learned how to handle the issue, please let me know.

I have a new Windows 10 laptop and I have migrated most everything from my previous laptop that I wanted and everything has been working pretty good up to now. I use Outlook 2007 for POP3 email and had installed in on the new LT and moved my PST and all was working good with email, contacts and calendar after much help from here: Yesterday I decided to move my iTunes from the old LT to the new LT and I installed ITunes and ICloud on the new LT and synced it with my iPhone 6. Thought all was well until this morning when I'm checking my POP3 email account. All my email downloaded no problem and I was able to read everything. When I went to send email I found that iCloud had emptied my Contacts and replaced it with iCloud contacts which essentially is the ones that I had on my phone. (My iPhone contacts are still there.) If I click the "To" field in the email it does bring up my outlook contacts that I had on my computer before the iCloud debacle and it does let me select them. However when I send them I get an immediate undeliverable message from system administrator saying:
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

So...I can connect the iCloud account just fine in account settings.  However, it doesn't show up in Calendar or Mail as an account I can view, yet it still shows up as properly connected in Settings.  Suggestions?  A quick google hasn't helped as it just suggested workarounds that result in read-only (not ideal) or things Ive already tried with no luck.

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

The only thing I would look at is to only use one cloud service if that is your suspect.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and MicroSoft Office 10 on my desktop computer, use Outlook for email and contacts, used to use the Outlook calendar till I got an iPhone 5S a few months ago, so now my calendar is the iCloud calendar, viewed in Outlook. The notes section of iCloud calendar entries uses very tiny font that is barely visible. I cannot find a way to change the font in the iCloud calendar in Outlook. There is no "format text" tab in the iCloud calendar to choose font type and size, like there is in the Outlook calendar. I spoke to Apple, who said this is a MicroSoft issue. I don't find anything regarding this when I Google "font size icloud calendar". I realize I can highlight the notes and make them larger with the mouse so I can read them on the desktop, but I would prefer to set my default font as a larger size.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate any help I can get.

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I am using a IBM T43 laptop, OS: WinXP Proffessional. Its my office laptop, my user id has power user rights but no admin rights. The following issues/ problems are being faced by me:

1) On using my DSL connection to connect to internet, my Hotmail, Yahoo & Gmail don't work. Neither I am able to attach any kind of attachments nor at times Gmail/Hotmail opens up. Then at times when I do get logged in, it again hangs up on clicking any mail in the inbox specially with Gmail & Hotmail.

2) On the other hand things work fine when i use my data card which gives me around 100kbps.

3) The problem also occurs on opening other pages at times. They just don't open up. Now for example after writing down this, when i tried clicking 'Preview Post' or ‘Submit Thread’ it did not proceed futher. Then I had to send it using my data card.

Steps taken for resolution:
1) I have got my broadband connection checked by my service provider, it works perfectly on any other laptop or desktop.

2) Have got my office laptop re-formatted.

3) Tried installing Mozilla but no use.

4) Also, tried working with admin rights but its still the same.

Simply reply to your earlier post with anything (such as "bump") to bring it back to the top.

Multiple posting is actually against the forum rules.

recently I set up a wireless network for my dorm, and there are about 10 or so machines on the network. This problem only began after I set the network up, however is only affecting my PC, all other computers on the network are fine.

I'm having a problem where every minute or so, I suddenly cannot load any webpages. If I let it sit long enough, I get a "connection timed out" message from firefox. After a few minutes I can access pages again, however the problem quickly repeats. What's strange however is that if I'm loading a video or downloading a file at the same time the problem begins, the download continues normally, with no problems. So I still have the internet, I just can't get pages to load.

I tried using OpenDNS, however this has done nothing to solve the problem. I've also tried switching from a wireless connection to being plugged into the router's lan ports, but both present the same issue.

Here's some info:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66ghz
Router: Netgear FWG114p
I'm just using the basic windows software to set up my connection.

Am more than happy to provide any more data if it will help pinpoint the issue. Thanks to anybody willing to tackle it!

Hi farshad,

You say that you can get to the login screen but you can't see any of your mail. What happens when you get to your inbox? Do you seen a blank white screen, or get a 404 error? Just give us a little more information so that we have a direction to go.

I have a problem with access to certain web pages that
used to work before. It seems I cannot access
any https-pages. Is it a setup problem?

I use Windows XP Professional and Explorer or Opera.

The problem started occured when I created a new "account" so I don't know
if maybe the setup changed somehow. I don't have the old "account" anymore
(that one perhaps had certain "administrator settings" that the new one doesn't have?).

Any ideas?

Today I wanted to open my investment page and when I click on "portfolio" or anyother option, the pages won't open. On the task bar below it just says "javascript:gonumbers".

I also wanted to find a furniture store and where they were located - and when I go to click on "find store" nothing happens.

All it says on the lower task bar is "javascript: openfindstorewindow, etc." and it won't go to the site that shows where the stores are located.

I have a feeling that I have to change something in my tools/internet options/security.

Can someone help me get this figured out?

Thank you.

I am using a IBM T43 laptop, OS: WinXP Proffessional. Its my office laptop, my user id has power user rights but no admin rights. The following issues/ problems are being faced by me:

1) On using my DSL connection to connect to internet, my Hotmail, Yahoo & Gmail don't work. Neither I am able to attach any kind of attachments nor at times Gmail/Hotmail opens up. Then at times when it does, it again hangs up on clicking any mail in the inbox specially with Gmail.

2) On the other hand things work fine when i use my data card which gives me around 100kbps.

3) The problem also occurs on opening other pages at times. They just don't open up. Now for example after writing down this, when i tried clicking 'Preview Post' or ?Submit Thread? it did not proceed futher. Then I had to send it using my data card.

Steps taken for resolution:
1) I have got my broadband connection checked by my service provider, it works perfectly on any other laptop or desktop.

2) Have got my office laptop re-formatted.

3) Tried installing Mozilla but no use.

4) Also, tried working with admin rights but its still the same.

Kindly assist.

I am trying to solve a weird problem for my sister's computer. (Win XP Pro, pre-SP2)

It won't access the internet no matter what type of connection I establish (I've tried wired connection to router on cable, wireless connection to same router and even dial-up). All connections are made but no internet.

My laptop surfs the internet just fine but her desktop just won't display any web pages - keep getting the "That page cannot be displayed" page. Other programs that access the internet directly are also failing.

I've tried everything I know of to fix it. Checked the internet connection settings - they look fine. Reset all the security zones to the defaults - no help.

Anyone have any ideas? Could this be caused by spyware? I know there is some on her machine - I ran SpyBot but can't get the latest updates.

It's almost as though part of the OS is corrupt and not allowing the internet to be recognized.

My PC (XP) has suddenly stopped loading any web pages, it is not the internet connection as browsing the internet on my laptop is no problem. I thought it might be a problem with IE8 but have tried Firefox with the same result. I do not get any error message just a blank page while the little green status bars just stop midway...
Have tried registry cleaner, anti-virus etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Need some more info. Are you wireless or hardwire? What are the make and model numbers of your Router and Modem? Are there any red x's or yellow flags in the Device Manager next to your network adapter? Open a command prompt and type the following without the quotes and paste all the results back here, "ipconfig /all".

This happened randomly a few days ago.

My computer wouldn't let me load AIM (so i un/reinstalled it and now it works.) It doesn't recognize my printer anymore unless I turn it off and then on. (There is no printer icon in the taskbar). And when I try to use the internet, the pages only load if i right click on their page on taskbar window at the bottom of the screen. Any thoughts?

Norton isn't detecting anything. I've done adaware and it found 43 "critical" objects. I deleted them but now, every few hours, it finds more again.

any ideas would be appreciated!
