Hi Inna,

Hope you're safe and well.

Can you give us more detail? Are you trying to read a .doc document, .pdf or other type of "readable" documents from a file that you downloaded for your hard drive from the application? Or you want to see the file conversion itself? 

Are you trying to read a file that you upload from your hard drive to the application?

If you can, please share some prints to help us understand your use case.

Best regards,
