How to use the OffiDocs File manager with GIMP, OpenOffice, etc


The following tutorial shows how to handle the files when using the OffiDocs apps like GIMP, OpenOffice, Inkscape, Dia, ... All these OffiDocs application has a file manager feature that allows to upload, save, and modify your files with the OffiDocs app.

This tutorial uses OffiDocs GIMP online as an example, but it can be used as a reference for any other OffiDocs application like OpenOffice writer, OpenOffice impress, OpenOffice calc, Inkscape, Dia, Scribus, etc.
Note that this tutorial does not enter in each application functionality. GIMP, OpenOffice, Dia, etc have plenty of free tutorials in the Internet. This tutorial is focused in how OffiDocs handles the files for each of these applications.

1. Save your files

Once you have written or modify your files with an OffiDocs application, it is time to save it. Do it with the internal File option in each application. For example, in GIMP, you can use "File -> Export" or "File -> Save as" but take into account that you must save the file in your default directory assigned:
/var/runxx/uploadxx/[your id]
or
/var/www/html/mydata/[user id]
Do not use any other directory. The "File manager" button provided by OffiDocs in the webpage is a link to that default path. If you save your file in another directory you will not be able to handle it.
