Save, download, print your document

Saving

By default, online Document Editor automatically saves your file each 2 seconds when you work on it to prevent your data loss in case the program closes unexpectedly. If you co-edit the file in the Fast mode, the timer requests for updates 25 times a second and saves the changes if they have been made. When the file is being co-edited in the Strict mode, changes are automatically saved at 10-minute intervals. If necessary, you can easily select the preferred co-editing mode or disable the Autosave feature on the Advanced Settings page.

To save your current document manually in the current format and location,

  • press the Save
    icon in the left part of the editor header, or
  • use the Ctrl+S key combination, or
  • click the File tab of the top toolbar and select the Save option.

In the desktop version, to prevent data from loss in case program closes unexpectedly, you can turn on the Autorecover option on the Advanced Settings page.

In the desktop version, you can save the document with another name, in a new location or format,

  1. click the File tab of the top toolbar,
  2. select the Save as option,
