Save to remote location:

  • Local files are always saved locally. Remote files are saved (uploaded) to the server. This is the default behavior.

  • If you create a new document and first save it locally and then upload it - it is considered a local file and always saved to disk.

Save to both local and remote location:

  • If you create a new document and upload it to a server - the file will always be saved to both disk and server. If a local path doesn't exists - a file save dialog window is opened.
  • If you open a remote file and save - the file is always saved to both disk and server. A save file dialog window is displayed if needed.
  • If you open a local file, that has previously been saved to a server - it will always be saved to both disk and server.

Ask me once for every new (or opened) document:
