    • I am assuming that you are using the Android App. If that is the case:

      1. Confirm that you have the permission to edit the document. If you did not create the document, ask the owner to grant you edit permission.
      2. When you open the document in the Android App, edit button is like a pencil icon on the bottom right of the document.
