Work with Pages, Numbers, and Keynote files on iCloud.com

Learn about using iCloud.com to view and edit Pages, Numbers or Keynote files that you created on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac.

View your files

To use iCloud.com to view Pages, Numbers, or Keynote files that you created on your iOS device or Mac, first set up iCloud Drive. When you create new iWork documents, save them to iCloud Drive. You can then access your files in iCloud Drive across all of your devices.

With iOS 11 or later, you can also access your files in the Files app. Learn more about using the Files app.

If you want to open iWork files that you made using iCloud.com on your iOS device or Mac, make sure that you have the required versions of Pages, Numbers, Keynote, macOS, and iOS.

iWork features that behave differently on iCloud.com

These features behave differently in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iCloud.

All iWork apps

  • 3D charts appear as 2D charts. They remain 3D in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iOS and Mac.
  • You can't add or edit movies or audio files. If you already have movies or audio files in your Keynote presentation, they play when the presentation is played if your browser supports the movie or audio format. When the presentation isn't being played, movies are represented by a poster frame and audio files are represented by an icon.
  • You can view conditional highlighting on table cells, but you can't edit conditional highlighting rules. You can edit rules in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for Mac.
  • You can view chart leader lines, but you can't edit them.

Pages

  • If you're tracking changes in a Pages document, you can open the document with Pages on iCloud.com, but you won't be able to edit it. If you own the document, you can turn off change tracking using Pages for Mac or Pages for iOS. 
  • You can view equations, but you can’t edit them.
  • You can't add or edit bookmarks, but bookmark links added using Pages for Mac or iOS will work when clicked.

Keynote

  • You can't view or edit action builds, but they remain in the document and are visible and editable on Mac and iOS.
  • Transitions and builds that aren't supported in Keynote for iCloud appear as Dissolve. The original transitions remain in the document and are visible and editable in Keynote for Mac and Keynote for iOS. Learn more about using Keynote for iCloud with Internet Explorer.
  • The soundtrack (audio set to play for the duration of a slideshow) doesn't play on iCloud. The soundtrack remains in the document and plays in Keynote for Mac and Keynote for iOS.
  • Recorded audio (voiceover narration) doesn't play on iCloud. It remains in the document and plays in Keynote for Mac and Keynote for iOS. Editing your document in Keynote for iCloud might make the recording out of sync with the slideshow.
  • The setting to automatically play a slideshow when it's opened is ignored.
  • The setting to restart a slideshow on idle is ignored.

Numbers

  • Forms in a Numbers for iOS spreadsheet are hidden when you open the spreadsheet in Numbers for iCloud. 
  • In Numbers for iCloud, you can edit a table linked to a form and your edits appear in the form when you open the spreadsheet in Numbers for iOS. 
  • In Numbers for iCloud, deleting a table linked to a form clears the form. Merging cells in a table linked to a form might clear the form.
