Handling pdfs in Google docs

Is there a way to seamlessly add a .pdf opened in Quick View (from a Google search result) to my Google docs? (Or even to save one to docs from the main search page?)

Even when I am signed into Google I don't see saving the pdf to Docs as an option, and when I click on the supplied Google Docs link I navigate away from the pdf.

Hi OmieWise!

I don't think there is a way to do this directly: you could convert it to a Word document and then upload that to Google Docs.

PDF to Word might help.

Hey OmieWise,

If you haven't checked recently, "Save in Google Docs" has been added to the list of options across the top of the Quick View window. It saves it to your Google Docs list in the background, leaving you viewing the pdf.
