Changing Document Owner

To change the document owner, click the User of the document as shown in the screenshot below.

Once you change the document owner in the ensuing popup, make sure you click the "Update Document" button to save it. 

Note: if the user isn't added to the folder the document resides in, then that user may not appear in the Document owner dropdown. To add a user to the folder, start by clicking the pencil icon next to the folder.
