If you need to collaborate with someone on your document in a different program or format, such as Word or PDF, you can email it as an attachment. However, this sends a copy of the document instead of sharing the original, so you won’t be able to use Doc’s collaboration tools.
- Click File > Email as attachment.
- Select a format.
- Enter the email addresses or Google Groups you want to send copies to.
- (Optional) Enter a message.
