Local document manager

This can only be done through the local document manager in the desktop editors and documents stored on a computer's hard drive or external drive.

Simply click one of the four document types in the top, left, Create New, section of the document manager. It will launch in a new tab.

Create New in File

Clicking File in an open document enters the backstage view of the document, in either the document manager or a Web browser. There are several tabs in the left column. One of them is Create New.

When this is clicked a new document is created in a new tab, in either the document manager or Web browser. It will be the same type of document that you are working in. Clicking it in a text document will create a new text document.

There is a document manager for an organization's OnlyOffice account. It is different from the local document manager found solely in the desktop editors.

The account document manager can be accessed from both the desktop editors and a Web browser.

Here are the steps to create a new document in the manager:

Step 1: Enter the folder where you want to create a new document

Double-click on the folder where you want to create a new document. Sub-folders and documents contained in the folder appear in the main section of the document manager. Double-click a sub-folder, if you need to enter it.

Step 2: Click the create menu

The drop-down menu is located in the top, left column of the OnlyOffice account document manager. The choices are Document, Spreadsheet, Presentation, Form template sub-menu, and folder.

Step 3: Click the desired document type

Clicking the desired item will create a document in the folder you are in with an editable text box with the word "New" and the document type. For example, "New Spreadsheet" would appear if you selected spreadsheet from the Create menu.

Step 4: Type a new name

Type the desired name over the text that is already in the text box. Then click the checkbox icon or press the Return or Enter key on your keyboard. The new document will be created, with a new name, in the folder where you want it.
