The Teamwork Document Editor allows you to download, open, edit and save changes to files stored in the Files area of your projects without having to re-upload them manually.
Within Teamwork, you can download the Teamwork Document editor and use it to edit files directly on your computer.

In the Apps tab of your profile, you will see a section for the Teamwork Document Editor and an option to Enable for your profile. Click the Download here link to install the app.
