How do I import a pdf directly to Google Drive?
I would like to add to this answer. The picture above given is from the old format of the Google Docs. In the new format of Google Docs Google has made things very easy and they are not bothering you about the format of the file. They will deal with the formats once you click support. So go to the Google docs and just on the right side of the Create button there is a small button of upload click on that and you will be able to select your file for upload. nNow here is a simple tip for you. Google docs is not very good when ites to reading and displaying the doc file format so what you need to do is to convert your file to PDF using the ClassicPDF converter() and using that you would be able to have an original format pdf which will you will be able to upload. and even if you download that pdf file back you won't have to worry about the problem with formatting.

What is the best iPad PDF annotating tool with Google Drive support?
After scouring the internet for a solution I have finally found one that seems very good (and free!). Foxit PDF s is a clean user-friendly PDF reader and annotator. Using its cloud feature you can connect to Google Drive by logging in within Foxit. Then you can choose which folders to sync between Google Drive and Foxit. The amazing part is that any annotations you make to the PDFs are automatically synced with Google Drive and appear when you open the PDF through Drive in your web browser on anyputer!
Is the basic editing done to PDF, such as commenting or highlighting, portable to Google drive and other systems?
After annotating your file in a PDF editing app save it as a flatten. All your annotations will be applied to the file. Now you can share a document with other people and theyll see yourments and highlights. Here how I usually create flattened copies in PDF Expert for Mac. Your app should have the similar menu. Hope this helped!
How long would it take to transfer 1,000 word documents and PDF from Google Drive to Dropbox?
There is no absolute answer it depends on the actual size of the file. If it has images on it it will be a lot bigger than if it where only . Another factor to take in to consideration is how fast is your internet connection. Is your connection dsl (to today standars a slow connection) or fiber optic? This simply fact can make file transfers more than 2 times faster. Anyway if your PDF and documents are only as long as they are not thousands it should be pretty fast.

What is the best free knowledge management system that can work with Google Drive to easily find words and phrases in existing documents on the Drive (Word, PDF)?
There is no free system that Im aware of that will look at all s of document stored on Google Drive and index the content. I use a search app called X1 | Knowledge revealed s which will index my hard drive plus other external sources though not including Google. It not free. It does search emails and give lots of other options. There is an alternative Copernic Search - Search Technology to instantly find files emails documents & much more! But that more of the same. I also use Evernote (you may have noticed) which will directly to files in Google Drive but does not search the content. The paid version of Evernote will index PDF and MSOffice files* - but again not free. I do pay for Evernote but I find it best if I include my to Google Drive in a note with an Executive Summary of what in the file. Then if Im searching for any documents on Dark Matter (not usual) I can jump directly to the (s) I have then to the files. I use the inbuilt search options to find specific terms - and will maybe add those searches to my Exec summary so I can find them again later if need be. Ill watch this topic because I be interested in a free easier option - but I doubt one exists *Edit - when theyre part of the Evernote database. Google Drive files are not.
