Depending on the type of folder or file and the access you have been given, you can interact with folders and files in Overdrive. When viewing a folder or file in a folder list you can right click on it and choose from the options:

  • Page Settings - open the settings for that folder or file
  • Open with Google Drive
  • Show in Menus - a quick link to hide or show the file in the site menu

You can also open any file in Overdrive. When viewing the file you will see a Page/Tile Menu icon to the top right, click on it and - depending on the file type - you will see some of the following options:

  • Refresh icon - refresh the content of the current page
  • View - change the view if the page is a Folder type
  • Show hidden files - Page Administrators can hide files; this option will show them in the folder list for the active user
  • Page Settings - access Page Settings
  • Open with Google Drive
  • Switch to Edit mode - if you have access to edit a Google format file (Document, Sheet, Slide etc) this will open the file in Edit Mode. Once you have finished editing, you can choose Switch to View Mode or navigate away from the page.

Other Icons

  • Star icon. Click to add a Google Drive star to your file (not available if your site is set to Access all Areas)
  • Download icon - for non Google files you will see a download icon, click on it to download the file.
  • Next and Previous - if you are in a Folder you can use Browse Mode once you open the first file by clicking on the next and previous arrows

Note: When editing a Google Doc, there is a known Google bug that will not allow the insert image dialog to open. If you wish to insert an image please use the Pop Out icon to open the doc in a new tab.
