Google Drive - Making PDF copies of documents on an Android Tablet or Phone and loading them to Google Drive

1. Install the FileConverter app (from X.KEY GmbH).  

2. Select the file and press


3. In the Share via... panel, press FileConverter 

4. When FileConverter has finished creating the PDF copy, swipe right, select the PDF, and press share. 

5. In the Share via... panel, press Save to Drive 

Note1: If, instead of loading the PDF copy to Google Drive you want to load it to Caselines, omit steps 7 and 8 and, in Caselines, navigate to the Device Storage - Documents - fileconverter folder to select the file.

Note2: You can use FileConverter to make a copy of an EML file and this works very well, except that the key words in the email header (Subject, From To) are in German and if you are reading this English language website that is probably not what you want.
