    Well I guess I never gave it a fair try so it's all a bit new to me. I suppose I had a rather outdated opinion of the Pages app and it was only by accident that I gave it a try.

    Yes I concur, if you use iCloud you can usually preserve the folder structure but if you just sync with the Photos app it will just add them to All Photos.

    One question: when you got this device did it startup with the setup wizard? That is, had it been erased and setup as a new machine? If not there is a good chance that preferences, settings and...
