On my 10.8.2 machine, any attempt to find files in ~/”Library/Mobile Documents” via Finder’s search bar seemingly produces no results whatsoever, no matter what the search term or filter is.

Hi Michael

Thanks for your feedback and errata! These should probably go into the errata section of the website but it’s OK because, obviously, I’ve now seen them!

Hmmm… No “Mobile Documents” folder? Do you actually have iCloud enabled on that Mac (that is, within System Preferences)? And have you opened apps like TextEdit and Preview, and browsed your iCloud file store? If not then the folders won’t yet have been generated.
