I have set everything up but I can’t load files into the app. I am using Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx files) and/or Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf files) but all files are greyed out in the app. I have managed to copy and paste my script onto the TeleprompterPAD® app screen, but I don’t want to use this method with all scripts. How can I load files directly into your app?
Answer from TeleprompterPAD®
Please check your version of teleprompterpad app, you probably need to upgrade to a newer version.

TeleprompterPAD Web-APP version
However the Web-APP version, since it is a lighter "lite version", only supports TXT files or the option to open files with the copy-paste method. You can save or convert to .txt format from any text software, such as Microsoft Word or Pages or you can use a fee online service.

However, reading a file is not mandatory, you can use the alternative copy-paste method which in most cases is faster and easier.
