    Hey,
    is it possible that I'm not allowed to edit and save documents directly after the opening on "File Browse" on ipad 2?
    I just can open eand edit, but I cannot save the document again in the original place.

    Apps in the iPad are isolated and one app cannot unilaterally access another app's file space. So you'll need to go to use the iOS 'Open In' facility if it's supported by this app. Any app can register its ability to open a specific file type. So, if the target app that you want to move the file back to has done this, pressing and holding the file icon will open a pop up box inviting you to 'Open In' and that target app will be listed. Choosing it will cause iOS to make a copy of the file in the target app's file space.

    You already have it, it is the operating system for all of Apples iDevices (iPad, iPhone and iPod).
