How to sync Keynote documents in iCloud Drive?

When using iCloud on a MacBook (“home base”) and iPad (“satellite”), Keynote docs are not syncing, and only show on the MacBook. The doc is showing that it is uploaded to iCloud Drive, but you can’t see them at all on the iPad. Any suggestions?
Someone posted about a similar problem in the Apple Support Communities:

“I think I found a workaround for this problem.
If you find iCloud Drive is not syncing reliably between devices:

1) On the OS X Yosemite devices, go to System Preferences/iCloud.
2) Leave iCloud Drive on but click on options and uncheck all the applications listed (iWorks,etc)3) Close System Preferences and open the iWorks app that is not syncing. You will still "see" iCloud Drive documents but this is not locally cached data/documents but direct to iCloud Drive (server side) data which should be the correct data set.4) When the app data looks correct, go back to System Preferences/iCloud/iCloud Drive options and check all the app boxes. I hope this solves your iCloud Drive issue.”
