I'm going to be in an area with shotty internet connection. I would like to be working on a Google Drive doc but know it usually doesn't let you edit if it's not connected to the internet. Is there a way around this? I will be the only person working on it and it's not shared. If relevant I'm using Windows on a laptop with Firefox.

  • @marikamitsos that's only for the chorme browser. there is no "offline" section for me in firefox. but thanks, chrome is free. – Celeritas May 27 '16 at 21:22
  • I am afraid you need to switch (just for editing your docs) to Google Chrome. As per the documentation "Offline access is only available in the Google Chrome browser.". Sorry :( – marikamitsos May 27 '16 at 21:43

I am afraid you need to switch (just for editing your docs) to Google Chrome.

As per the documentation found here :

"Offline access is only available in the Google Chrome browser."

Once on Chrome, under the corresponding settings, you can enable offline editing per file:
per file

OR for all files: enter image description here
