26 - Chrome OS tips and tricks
1. Press the Search key
on your keyboard or select the Launcher
2. Select All Apps (or type "Google Drive").
3. Select the Google Drive
4. Open a Google document you have already created or create one
as you normally would (
). Notice the offline
icon displays next to the file name
reminding you that you are working on this document while not
connected to the internet.
5. Make your desired changes. The next time you are online and have
Google Drive open, your local changes will upload to Google Drive.
You can’t open and access every type of file you have saved in
Google Drive when there is no internet connection. To enable offline
access to file types other than Google documents when offline,
Any changes you make to a current document or any document you
create while offline are saved locally on your computer and will not be
seen if you open the document from Google Drive on another computer
or device. The changes will only be reflected in the Google Drive online
version of the document the next time you connect to the internet and
access Google Drive.
If you make changes to a Google document while offline and someone else
makes changes to the document as well (for example, if the document is
shared with someone else), the next time you are online and have Google
Drive open, your changes will merge with the other person’s changes.
