Hi there and welcome
You cannot do it in the app itself, but rename the file and remove the X and word will then be able to open it.
But can I ask why you wish to save it as a .doc?
No sorry, as docx is the format that's in use since 2007, so no App on the iPad does this
But you can convert it online for free with this site
From the iPad, though I am amazed that the sites you use still do not allow docx.... thats from 2003, maybe its worth trying a docx to see if they accept it?
actually I found an app that does this, was not easiest to find but use this
Let me know how you go please
follow the instructions here to share it please
It wont allow to save as doc but do the instructions for sharing on the link I gave please so you can share to the converter app.
You share Jenny but you choose the App and share it to this.
Else would you consider using Dropbox to store it online then you can access it easily with a computer
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
its very strange why it will not open
Press and hold on the file instead, do you then get the share option?
ok, thank you Jenny
If you need anything else, please let me know.
