Edit a File

You can edit files stored in Oracle Content and Experience and if you have the desktop app installed, any changes you make to the file will then be synced to any device synced with your account. You can also edit files in Microsoft Office or Microsoft Office Online.

To edit a file, select the file from your file list and click Edit on the menu bar. You can also view the file then click the Edit button. You’re prompted to open the file using the desktop app. The file opens with the software installed on your computer to make your edits (for example, Microsoft Word when editing a .doc file).

When you finish editing, save the file as you would normally. If you’re already syncing the file, the latest version is shown in your folder and on your other devices as well. If you didn’t sync the file beforehand, the newly synced file is stored in your .download folder in your Oracle Content folder on your desktop.

Keep these things in mind when you’re editing files:

  • Try to keep files smaller than 5 GB. Some web browsers can't process files bigger than that.
  • If someone shared a folder with you, you must have at least a Contributor role in the folder to be able to edit a file there. When you edit a file you are uploading a new version of the file to the folder.
  • A new version of the file is created each time the file is autosaved.
