  4. From the Download dialog box, select an option:

    • Click Save, and then select a local or network location to save the document to.

    • Click Open.


You can download a doclet without checking it out. However, if you don't check it out, others can modify it, and you cannot upload a new version. Oracle recommends checking out a doclet first before downloading it locally or to a network folder.

After you check out and download the doclet, you update it in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint, and then upload the edited version.
