Questions about editing word (docx) files

I have a word document, and there is no way to edit it, or highlight it, or make edits to the text formatting in dt3.

Is this a given or is there something I can do to tweak it, thanks!

You can use the “Open With …” command to open/edit the document in an app on your computer that can handle Word documents, e.g. Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, … the list is long.

Yes. You can edit word documents in Word and perhaps in Pages.


dt3 can’t edit word files internally, that’s for sure!
So I won’t have to think about that anymore!

Please read the Help > Documentation > Documents chapter regarding the native and non-native file formats usable in DEVONthink.
