As documents are saved to OneDrive automatically, there is no “Save” button. You can download a copy of the document in the native Office document format, PDF or ODT formats locally if required, using the Save As option.

*You still can’t open a locally stored office file directly without first uploading to OneDrive. There is a upload link in the Open tab which uploads the locally stored document to OneDrive and opens the document.
