How to disable the iCloud Open dialog in Mountain Lion
Authored by: rumirocks on Jul 31, '12 05:16:06AM
There is a switch top left, one for iCloud and one "On My Mac". Toggle that and it stays at your last selected option, no need to disable iCloud throughout the system.
What window is this top-left switch on?

Sorry to ask a dumb question, but the only thing I used iCloud Docs for in Lion was iA Writer--and I have a lot of iA Writer docs strewn around for use on my iPad and iPhone--and if I turn Documents and Data off in the iCloud Prefs on Mountain Lion, it says that it will deny me access to everything stored there until I turn it back on; so, presumably my iA Writer docs. Problem is that I have a hundred small tech chunks in iA Writer, and the thought of having to download them individually to my Mac is not what I have a computer for.

Also, I do not want my TextEdit docs autosaved to iCloud.

[I find the lack of ML choices so intrusive. Why didn't they give a big fat warning? This interferes with workflow; it's irritating. I lost the Activity Window, I enjoyed having a separate search function because I could use it to store something I was going to look at without the page changing. yada-yada.]
