How to read and edit PDF, doc, Excel files on Android
We understand that you want to know if it is possible to read and edit a PDF, doc or Excel file on your Android phone. We will help you with the appropriate information on your Android.
Depending on the Android model, your phone can support Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF, and plain text file formats.
You can open the files by following the instructions below, but it does not support editing files on your Android.
In the main menu, press “Menu”, then “Media” and “Other files”. Then select the file you want to select using the navigation key. Press the “Center (OK)” button to open the file on Android.
Microsoft Office for Android is just terrible.
We recommend using Google Docs / Slides / Sheets and Adobe Reader for PDF (Google offers its own PDF viewer, but we find Adobe Reader much better developed, so you can use it in tandem with the Google Docs Suite).
We recommend using LibreOffice if you like open source software.
Read and edit PDF files on Android
You can open password-protected PDF files with Adobe Reader for Android.
You may have a problem with the default browser and the built-in PDF viewer. To fix this, you can download the PDF and open it with Adobe Reader. If you can do this, you are done.
Note that it is not possible to convert the read-only PDF to editable in the Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile application on Android.
You must save the file locally on your Android, and then try adding comments.
If you do not want to save the copies to your local phone, you can upload it to the document cloud or the same old folder after adding comments.
Then you can remove it from the local storage of your Android anyway.
Special point on the docx to doc converter on Android
DOCX is the file extension of files created with Office 2007 and 2010, but they can not be opened with MS Office 1997-2003 (Doc format). So you need to convert your DOCX file to DOC. And there are plenty of applications available to do it. Some of these applications that you can use on your Android are:
- Docx2doc: The online conversion of the document is complete.
Please download and click on the “Convert file” button in doc format to get the file in one of two formats: web browser format or text document.
- Zamzar: use the file you want to convert and select the format you want to convert. However, you will need an email ID to get the output.
- Investintech: it is an online service to convert DOCX to DOC simply by downloading it. You will receive a link to download the converted DOC document. The advantage is that you do not need to provide your Email ID.
Note: To open the file on your Android, you will need an external program like Quickoffice, Kingsoft Office.
