This is a note for myself, found on Mac OSx Hints.
I don’t like the iCloud UI for OSx – it’s inferior to Dropbox. As each application has it’s own iCloud storage it’s pretty hard to store a heterogeneous set of documents relating to a project or customer. For example, a Contract document and an Expenses spreadsheet would be invisible from each other’s program – and Finder.
So, the hell with iCloud by default – let’s use the filesystem. In terminal, run:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSDocumentSaveNewDocumentsToCloud -bool false
