Importing existing documentsAdded by IBM on December 11, 2013 | Version 1 (Original)
|After you upload IBM® Lotus® Symphony® documents or other document file types to your files list, you can import them so that you and others can work with them in web browsers.
Supported formats include .odt
, and .txt
. To import an existing document, perform the following steps:
- Upload a file to the Files list.
- Click My Files.
- Find the file that you want to open in IBM Docs, and click the file name to go to a page with actions that you can take.
- Click Edit in IBM Docs or View to automatically import the file into IBM Docs format.
Note: If the document is a template file with the format of .dot, .dotx, or .ott, click Create File. A New from File window opens. Type a file name and then click Create. The template file is imported in IBM Docs and a new document that is based on the template file is created at the same time.
Occasionally, certain formatting from uploaded files does not display precisely in IBM
Docs, yet is preserved in the file. In these cases, once a version is published, you can download the file back to its original format.
