Tips: did you know these?

Printing from within Collabora

As a result of the Collabora Online integration with the Nextcloud Android client, you can directly print files from within Collabora. No need to download the file on your device, choose “print” in the menu and get it done!

Collaborative text editor

  • Edit text files on you mobile
  • Create new text files on your mobile

Markdown files are an easy way of taking meeting notes with your colleagues, drafting a new proposal during a team call, writing down some quick ideas or thoughts etc. After structuring the text with basic formatting in a human-readable way you usually have to get back to it, maybe on the go, edit it again on your mobile and have full access on the content of that file. Maybe you need to share it with other people that will access it on their mobile. Or you might even need to create a complete new text file quickly using your mobile client.

Here’s a reminder that this is possible through Nextcloud Files for Android 😉

Note that this feature is available in version 3.10.0 or newer.

Dark mode

Enabling the dark mode while using your devices enhances visual ergonomics and reduces eye strain. It adjusts the screen colours according to current light conditions, providing more comfort at night or in dark environments.

Change the settings from your Nextcloud for Android app and go from “Light” to “Dark”, or simply choose the “Follow system” option, which automaticly adapts to your device’s settings.

Note that this feature is available in version 3.10.0 or newer.
