Man this is way more complicated than it should be, but to summarize if you want to edit your google documents offline here is what you have to do from

  1. Use Google Chrome
  2. Make sure the Google Docs offline extension is loaded

  3. If you have multiple google account (eg home and work), then you have to setup a profile in Google Chrome for each

  4. Then if you are using Google Apps, login as system administrator and make sure that Apps/Google Apps/Drive/Offline is enabled

  5. Got to in google chrome and select the gear icon and make sure offline is enabled.

  6. Login to on google chrome before you leave the land of the internet

  7. Now your documents will be store offline

Makes me realize how simple it is to just click on a pptx or xlsx from Google Drive and have it just work.
