However, when using Docs, I found that when I want to download a document in a non-"MS Office/Open Office/PDF" format, for example:

In this case, we select the document to be downloaded:

Right-click and choose "Export…" from the context menu ......", A "Convert and Download" dialog box is displayed:

After clicking the "Download" button, Docs automatically packs the selected document:

After the package is completed, the download dialog box is displayed automatically:

In this way, we can smoothly download non-"MS Office/Open Office/PDF" documents stored in Docs.
