Reader Gordon Arbuthnot has discovered an interesting chink in iCloud’s armour. He writes:

I recently printed a Mail message as a PDF file and chose iCloud as the destination. I thought it would show up in Preview’s iCloud file storage but it’s not there. Nor is it in the Pages file storage. Any idea of where it is and how I can get to it?

    Chris Breen forgot about the “All My Files” view available by clicking the top of the sidebar in any Finder window. The “missing” files will always be listed there, even though they’re stored in an application’s iCloud container. You can also search for the file by name using Spotlight.
