My understanding of Documents and Data in iCloud preferences is that when turned on, all of my iWork documents will be synced. I don't want to do that because some documents contain sensitive data. Is there a way to restrict syncing to a selected folder of documents?¬†
What exactly happens if I checkmark "documents and data" in the iCloud preferences on both my Macs?†On iOS my understanding is that developers can build support for iCloud right into their apps, and so, only those apps that are coded to support iCloud syncing will be able to do it. However on the Mac, documents are not stored in an app-centric manner (and I'm glad because I loathe the app-centric document storage aspect of iOS).
So, I'm not clear what happens if you choose to sync "documents and data" over iCloud. Currently I use Chronosync to sync my documents folders between my desktop and laptop. However, this is a fairly hands-on process, and while I still plan on using Chronosync between my computers for several purposes, I would be happy to have iCloud sync certain documents and data between my Macs.
For example, I'd like iCloud to sync my Stickies, Downloads folders, and certain folders of documents like scanned receipts and saved web archives, etc. However I am scared to check the "Documents and Data" checkbox because I don't know what the heck it does. Is it going to scan my computer and upload everything in my documents folder? Or what?†I read Apple's iCloud set-up guide but it did not give me a clue regarding this, and I didn't see any links to an advanced manual.

Is there a way to get my everything in my Documents folder onto my iDisk without having to actually moving the former? I tried symbolic links which worked for DropBox, but for MobileMe, I got an error saying that it's not compatible with symbolic links.
How do I select only the photos I want to photo stream, whenever I delete the ones I don't want it automatically adds a whole bunch more that I don't want. I would like to drag only selected pictures to photo stream but that doesn't seem to be an option.
So I have set both my MacBookPro and my iPhone to sync my AddressBook via iCloud.†The sync does seem to happen fine when I reboot my iPhone.But it does not seem to happen automatically whenever I change my Address Book on my MacBookPro.and I thought that is the whole point of this feature, isn't it?It seems to work fine when I click the Sync button in iTunes ...†
1.iCloud is in my browser but I'd like to keep my calendar and contacts etc. open all the time outside Safari and on the dock.†
2. I have iCloud in my iphone 4 and ipad2 , latest OS,but can't see icon or keep icloud open there?Do I really have to go through Safari everytime I want to see my icloud calendar or contacts?As you know, there's already my calendar and contacts icons from before iCloud.There and accessible but not synced to changes from my laptop.

I have a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 4.I signed up for iCloud using a gmail address.† I checked and its the same for both devices.Contacts seems to be syncing with iPhone, but NOT with MacBook?Calendar seems to be syncing with both?†
I recently switched from a MacBookPro to a MacBook Air and have therefore been switching my iClour from one machine to another. Everything seemed to be working fine with iCloud, but today when I logged onto my work iMac, which alos yns with my iCloud and all my bookmarks are gone. I have checked and they should be synced but they just will not come up.¬†why this would happen and how i can get to synd with my Air, IPhone, etc?
Since a few days, my Mac is constantly syncing (iCloud), I get the sync icon spinning in the menu bar. I am not using iCloud for file sync, I uses Dropbox, so I don't know why it's syncing frequently and for a long time.
I have an iMac and a MacBook Pro. Both are on Lion 10.7.3 and iCloud. Bookmarks are set to sync to iCloud on both computers, but they don't sync automatically. If I add a bookmark on one, it will not appear on the other unless on the second computer I go to System Preferences->iCloud and uncheck and recheck Bookmarks. Everything else seems to sync as expected.
Sometimes works, sometimes not.† IS there a way to force sync them?¬† My ipad currently shows 335 contacts, and my Mac Lion, and iphone show 79.
I have a ton of data on the ipad that† I want to access from all devices. Wierdly enough, SOMETIME the transfer occurs, sometimes not. This morning I entered a new contact on the iPad, and it instantly appeared on the Mac and iphone. So why don't the other 280 or so do that!?
I thought iCloud would sync all of my devices. For example, when I bookmark something on my iPad, it doesn't show up on my iMac. I have everything checked off in sysystem preferences for all devices under iCloud and still no sync.What to do?
I have a macbook pro, iphone 4, and iMac.¬† Both computers are running Lion and my iphone 4 is up to date.¬†
I believe I set up iCloud correctly on all three devices.¬† However, only the iMac and the iPhone seem to be syncing properly.¬† For some reason, mail sent from me.com via my macbook pro doesn't show up in my other devices.¬† Also, iCal entries made on my macbook pro are also not showing up.¬†
My reminders app is not syncing across all of my devices. For example when I complete a reminder "Grocery Shopping". I mark it completed on my iPhone however it does not show completed on my Mac nor completed on my iPad Mini. I am signed in to iCloud on all of my devices with the same user name and password.
I'm running Lion OS 10.7.2 and Version 5.0.1 on my iPhone 4. I have iCloud set up to sync contact, mail, calendars (everything).¬† I have some contacts on my Macbook that are not on my iPhone. IT is supposed to conform them all automatically.
I have two iMac's and one MacBook Pro connected to one iCloud account.My Safari bookmarks will not sync. I have tried disconnection and reconnecting the computers and still can not get this to work correctly.¬†
I have a mac mini, a macbook, iphone and ipad.¬†I upgraded from mobileme to icloud recently. ¬†
on my mac mini i have 833 contacts, I am syncing with iCloud, but icloud is only showing 750 contacts.¬†
I have checked my mac mini for a group that says 'on my mac' and i don't have one, it's not showing in my group list which means that theres no contacts in there.¬†
Under the iCloud group on my mac mini, when i click 'All contacts' the missing contacts are in there. (these include my boyfriend and my dad!) yet these contacts are not on icloud.com, my iphone or ipad...¬†
I seem to have baffled iCloud support and am still waiting for a resolution
Is there some way they may be in an 'on my mac' account and not showing somehow? but then i dont understand how they'd appear under all contacts in the icloud account.¬†
I recently downloaded a local college baseball schedule to iCal on my Macbook. It shows up in my iCal calendar on my Mac. It has not shown up on my iPhone via iCloud. When I sync my iPhone I do not use any syncing buttons because everything is supposed to be synced via iCloud. This new calendar shows up in my Mac iCal but nowhere else (iCloud calendar or iphone calendar). What am I forgetting to do? I've ebven tried syncing with my cable, no difference.
Info:iPhone 3GS, iOS 5, Main syncing computer is MacBook
