HOWTO | Find your way around Documents 5
Preview and open files and move them about the place
Set up settings
Tap the menu button at the top-left of the screen to access settings, which enable you to toggle passcode lock and define where downloads go. The sidebar also provides an Open button for accessing iCloud documents and any other connected cloud storage accounts, such as Dropbox or Box.
Tap Edit and any editable document will have an empty circle at its top-right. Tap it and a tick will appear. You can then use the toolbar buttons at the foot of the screen to copy, move, rename or delete the item. The Actions button provides further actions, so you can zip multiple-item selections. The archive can then be uploaded.
Aside from four smart folders (Starred Files, Recents, iTunes Files, Photos), other folders and documents can be rearranged by drag and drop – tap and hold to select something, then drag it. To move a file up one level, drag it to the top-left ‘back’ button.
Documents 5 enables you to drag documents to and from its iCloud storage area. This then makes them available across devices and on any Mac that supports iCloud Drive. (On some devices, though, we’ve found iCloud access in Documents 5 can be sluggish.)
Using the network section, tap the wireless icon to enable access to Documents files via a Mac/PC browser or WebDAV-compatible app. You can also add account details for cloud storage providers like Dropbox. Finally, available Macs will be listed. Sign in to upload files to Documents.
Drag the browser button to the left to access the built-in web browser. A browser might seem superfluous, but it’s designed for saving documents. Tap the save button top-right and you can save the page as a web archive or PDF and select a folder to place it in. Tap and hold a link and you can save (and rename) that specific file.
