Same problem here. 1.2.2, 10.8 DP3 with latest updates
Mountain Lion's “Open File” dialog displays
TextEdit's iCloud documents folder unless it's empty, then
~/Desktop unless it's empty, then ~/Documents, and when I create a
new document I can't save it to iCloud at all — the option
doesn't exist in “Save File” dialog.
Also, it looks like the File > iCloud menu works, it's very
inconvenient, since Mountain Lion pop up its “Open
File” dialog (which I've grown used to).

I can't perform the update to 1.2.2 because the App store tells
me to sign in via an Apple ID that is not my own ([email blocked] -- see image). I am not
offered an opportunity to download using my actual Apple ID.
This problem happens only when I'm trying to update iA Writer to
1.2.2. No other app purchase or update triggers this App store
Roger, I think this may happen if a receipt for this Apple ID
exists in the app bundle. Where did you get that copy of the app?
To fix this error, move current version of Writer to Trash, and
simply install 1.2.2 instead of updating.
I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems with the
1.2.2 update. We’ll investigate these issues, but
unfortunately we can not promise Writer will work on 10.8 until it
is released. Thank you for your understanding on this.
@Roger — iA Writer 1.2.2 should appear in Updates, and
once you’ve updated in Purchases. If you’ve updated but
are still getting 1.2.1, please delete iA Writer.app, sign into the
App Store using your Apple ID, and reinstall from the App
We’re trying to find the bug now, but we haven’t
been able to replicate it yet. To help, if you have a problem using
iCloud in Writer 1.2.2, please mention:
the version of OS X you’re using
what happens when you try to use iCloud
whether it’s repeatable or only happens occasionally
If you’re experiencing crashes trying to use iCloud,
we’d really appreciate it if you could attach a crash log.
You can find this in the Finder using Go > Go to Folder…
and entering ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports. Alternatively you
can use the utility Console.app: look for the crash log under Files
> ~/Library/Logs > CrashReporter, click on the most recent
Writer crash log, and choose File > Save a Copy As…
Unfortunately we can’t provide the previous version for
download. I’m sorry we haven’t worked this out yet, but
we will try to solve it as soon as we can.
I am using 10.7.4 on my Mac and I cannot even access iCloud on
iAwriter with this version. I could in the previous version. When I
go to my iCloud settings, it shows that I have iA Writer documents
in iCloud, but they are not accessible through iA Writer.
I'm also experiencing the exact same scenario as Critter
mentions above. I am on 10.8 DP3 - just updated to the latest
version of iA Writer (1.2.2) and I can't access my previous files
in iCloud that I created in iA Writer before.

Same problem here. OS X 10.8 DP3 latest version. iCloud shows my
local files. iCloud option not available when saving. Move document
to iCloud in menu bar works fine. Opening files from iCloud in the
menu bar works fine as well. No crashes here. Other apps that use
iCloud, like Coda 2, don't have this problem.
I’m sorry for the ongoing problems you’re
experiencing with iCloud in Writer 1.2.2. We haven’t resolved
the issue with Mountain Lion 10.8 DP3 yet, but we were able to
replicate and solve iCloud showing the content of ~/Documents in
Mac OS X 10.7.4:
Install iA Writer from the App Store (Purchases section)
I’ve attached a screenshot of the files AppCleaner

We’ve tested Writer 1.2.2 with iCloud in Mountain Lion DP
4 and it seems to be working as expected. If you update to DP 4,
please let me know if this problem continues or if Writer+iCloud
works for you. Also, is anyone on Lion or Snow Leopard who has
tried the above suggestions still having problems? If so please let
