Remove books from cloud

I have a family cook book I created as an ePub in Calibre. I used the server to add it to my iPad. I have now made some changes to the book in Calibre. I want to replace the copy on my iPad, but the only option I appear to have is a download from the cloud. This does not have my changes in it. How can I get a new download from Calibre on my Mac? TIA

Once you download a book, the server has no control over it. Delete it from whatever app you are using to read it and re-download it.

It appears that OS X puts a copy of a book into iCloud when I use the server to put it on my iPad. I have searched for a method to delete it from iCloud, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a way to turn this feature off or delete the copies from iCloud?

I think you'd have better luck asking in an Apple specific forum

If you go to System Preferences > iCloud and deselect whatever you don't want to be sent to iCloud (by default in Sierra+ it's turned on, I believe). You also need to go into iCloud Options, because that's where the Desktop/Documents settings are hiding.

I deselected everything because I couldn't figure out where it goes (when documents started to disappear from my HDD!) and how to delete etc (also, I got stung by Apple before with (??) me.com when first I had to pay and then it just went poof).

Oh Apple, I wish I knew how to quit you.

Apparently, I have nearly 1Gb "backed up" to iCloud. I have no idea how to even access it.

Thank you. I will try that. I am also a litle upset with what iCloud does automatically.
