Clio Launcher is a tool that lets you view and edit your Clio Manage documents in the software of your choice. You can then upload the changes back to Clio Manage. 

Tip: Clio offers a virtual file drive called Clio Drive that is used to access, create, and edit documents right from your desktop. Any changes made on your desktop are immediately mirrored in Clio Manage. Learn more here.
