Saving documents issue

Hi there.

I'm trying to save a document i have done on Google docs as a .doc format. But what i have done is copied the document, opened a new Docs document then saved it as a .pdf format because its easier and more universally "accepted" especially if its a CV. But....

If i want to go back to the document what is the way or procedure if i want to edit it again? (Currently, as i see it i need to download it again then open it or something then edit it. I could be wrong).

Please advice.

I have an Acer C720 Chromebook and as I understand it, once you've created an initial document and edited it to whatever format you require, you can then save it as a PDF (or any other available extension) downloading and using it accordingly for whatever reason you need...

Should you need to edit the said PDF, simply go back to the original (which will have been saved automatically at the default extension) revamp the document and again ~ save it as a PDF, leaving it with the same name (thus overwriting the original document) or creating a new name should you wish to save that original...

Haven't had time to experiment to any length or depth, but briefly: that is what I've managed to achieve....

Hope such might be helpful...

Therein lies the 64,000 dollar question: 'What might that be'???

I did fail to mention in the previous post, that I use 'Word on Line' to process and re-edit those documents... You may need the app for that if you've not got it...
