3.2. Sync PDF files via iCloud Drive

Documents 6 allows storing files in iCloud Drive and keeps them up-to-date across all your devices.     

In order to sync selected files via iCloud, drag and drop the necessary files to the iCloud tab in the Documents app. To quickly transfer several files into the iCloud, open Documents, tap Select, select the files,  choose Move or Copy on the sidebar, select the iCloud folder, and tap Copy.

If the files are uploaded to iCloud successfully, they will be available in the iCloud tab in PDF Expert or Documents on another iOS device provided the second device is connected to the same iCloud account. You can gain access to Documents iCloud files in other applications which support iCloud Drive. For this, open the iCloud Drive section within the application and select the Documents folder.  


In Documents 6, you can access iCloud files via the iCloud and the iCloud Drive sections.

To find the Documents 6 files on Mac, make sure to connect to the same iCloud account under System Preferences, then open the iCloud Drive tab in Finder and select PDF Expert/ Documents folder (Documents 6 and PDF Expert 6 share a single iCloud container). 

Please note: the folder can be called either PDF Expert or Documents since our apps use a single iCloud container.
