    That's important to me too, though before in Google Docs I would just write in parenthesis above or below where the issue is and highlight it in red. I agree that they should bring that feature back, more helpful than they realize.

    This is a great announcement.


    I wish upon a star that Apple's cloud will replicate Dropbox's ability to let you drag items into a folder and store or share.


    Or could someone please tell me if Apple offers this ability already? 


    I love being able to store various types of files in a folder that gets backed up to Dropbox.  Very useful!

    How many iWork users actually do any collaboration? Aren't they mostly just posting on AI all day long.

    This is an awesome update.  Chart editing finally.  Although I couldn't detach a pie chart slice.


    This is the most awesome piece of Web Office Suite software I have ever seen.


    Thank You Apple !

    Many of us collaborate before posting on AI. That's why there's so little squabbling in the threads...

    Indeed, the whole point of web apps is to be OS-agnostic.

    This is how a service is supposed to be handled. Now, if they would just do the same with all of their services.

    One note about Dropbox: it does NOT work with the file format used by the new versions of iWork. With the new versions, Pages/Numbers/Keynote "files" are packages (i.e. directories with files inside). Syncing between Macs works fine but changes are NOT noticed by Dropbox-for-iOS. I have complained several times to Dropbox and they acknowledged the problem. It seems they're not going to fix it.

    You're not alone in thinking that you needed an Apple product to get an AppleID. Many folks share the same belief and perhaps at one time it was true, but not now.


    However, unless I'm mistaken, you DO need an Apple product to get an AppleID with an iCloud email address. To clarify: anyone can get an AppleID with, say, a gmail address. But to get an AppleID with an iCloud address, you need to do it from an Apple device.


    Not only that - there is a lifetime limit of three iCloud-linked AppleIDs per device. If you try to create a fourth iCloud AppleID you will be denied.
