Hello everyone, here is my question.
If a person has a document on her Macbrook Pro would it be saved in iCloud? And if so, should that person be able to see it on their iPad? This also goes for visaversa. :)
Thanks

Only if you are using software that saves the document to iCloud.

As of the introduction of iCloud Drive in Yosemite, any software the standard OS X save dialog should be able to save to iCloud Drive. But almost nothing does so automatically; it's up to you to choose where you want to save it. You can save it your local drive, or to iCloud Drive. Entirely up to you.

Once a document is available on iCloud Drive, you should also be able to see it on your iPad **provided** you open a program that can read the file and has iCloud Drive support included. For example, if you do a Pages document on a Mac and save it to iCloud Drive, your iPad's copy of iOS Pages will be able to see the document by default.

I understand there is now an app on the App Store that will let you access the contents of iCloud Drive like a file browser, but of course you still need a program compatible with the file on your iPad to really use it. Luckily, most of the most common file types are accessible.
