  • No override and new file with ".pdf-update" appears when using OneDrive


    I am using Galaxy Tab S4 and using cloud service to access pdf files in OneDrive.

    After I open and add some comments to the file and save it, what I expected to happen was replacing the existing file. Sometimes this seemed to work, but right now when I save the file, a new file with a suffix ".pdf-update" in it's file name appears. This file can be opened with Foxit, but when I modify and save again, this time ".pdf-update-update" file appears.

    Also, when I did the same thing in Google Drive, it looks like it fails to upload the file.

    Thank you.

      I'm currently using Version

      Yes I get the error that it failed to upload the file when I use Google Drive. I'm sorry that since the message appears in my language and not in English, I cannot deliver you a precise message.

      Currently I'm using Dropbox, and until now it seems to work. It looks like the Foxit fails to merge the .pdf and .pdf-update files into one in OneDrive, which looks successful in Dropbox.

      Thank you.
