Which apps I should prefer to edit .pdf and .docs format files in my smartphone without having change in its text format and alignment as transferred from computer?
Download WPS Office + PDF from the playstore. https://play.google.com/store/ap...Open your .pdf file in WPS Office. It provides a very easy and user-friendly option to edit pdfs as well as save the edited document back into pfd. If this doesn't help try Office Suite + PDF editor https://play.google.com/store/ap...Personally, I prefer WPS since it has a very friendly and intuitive UI. Hope this helps. Cheers!
What’s an MS Office-compatible way to edit document files & convert to PDF in Ubuntu Linux? Rebooting just to make tiny changes is tiring!
Open office generally does a very good job of handling M$ office docs. Unless you are using some oddball features they port just fine. Especially if you save in Office 95/97 format.I have had problems with Libre office under Ubuntu. Both in terms of stability and compatibility with M$ Office. Those may have been fixed by now. I installed Open office & removed Libre office a few years back and haven’t had any problems since.As for a PDF, just print it and instead of printer print to PDF. There are a number of apps that’ll convert docs to pdf as well.

What features would make Quora better?
'Ask to Verify' - A2V feature.Just like A2A requests, Quora users should be able to send A2V requests to verify an answer is factually correct or not.Take for example, someone mentioned about a quick remedy for a health ailment in his answer. The answer also gets lots of upvotes. Before you try the remedy yourself, you want to verify if the facts provided in the answer are correct. What should you do?You see someone posting a controversial answer about NASA Space research. You are not sure whether the facts provided are correct. You know an expert in this topic (yes, Robert Frost!). You want to seek his opinion if the answer is factually correct or not. What should you do?What are the existing options?You can check if this answer is upvoted by experts (when the experts related to that field upvote the answer, their names show up in bold in the list of upvoters). This may not work. Why? Even if one of the experts has upvoted the answer, that doesn't necessarily mean that he agrees to the opinions expressed. The upvoting criteria is subjective. Courtesy: What are some different voting philosophies on Quora?. Even worse, you see no upvotes from any expert. Now, what next?You can request any expert on this topic through personal message. Else, you may even comment on the answer mentioning the @expert seeking his opinion.This may not work. Why? First, many users don't entertain and respond to PM unless they are familiar with the sender. Some experts may not even entertain mentioning their @ names in comments seeking opinions. Because if they start responding to individual 'free' requests, they will have trouble managing bulky notifications. After all, what are they going to get in return? (unlike A2A, they don't get credits for their contribution). Now what?You can directly interact with the answerer through comments and seek proof. Again, this may not work. The answerer may find this behavior rude as you're challenging his/her belief and hence he/she may not be willing to open up for conversation. In some cases, the answerer may not be able to provide the proof or he/she may again quote a source which you're not convinced of. Then, what next?You can A2A the expert to answer the question.This also may not work. The expert may write an answer sharing his own views without touching upon the views already expressed by the answerer. In such case, you will not succeed in verifying the already written answer. Even worse, if the question is something like "What are some mind blowing facts....?", the expert may write an answer with a completely different story. How do you verify the existing answer?You can Google and verify the facts yourself.This is not easy. Then, why should you use Quora?Let's have an A2V feature!To summarize, I believe this A2V feature will be very helpful for many users in almost all topics such as Medicine and Healthcare, History, Legal Issues and Law in Everyday Life, Entrepreneurship, Parenting, Quora, Safety, Space Exploration etc. (except for personal stories). Quora can deduct credits from users for every A2V request (just like A2A requests). P.S. There could be many highly upvoted answers in Quora that may be factually incorrect. This blog captures few of them - Highly upvoted answers that may be factually incorrect.
