how do I update the original document on my computer?

I know how to access a document, edit and sync it to other devices, but how do I update the original document on my computer? only a copy goes into the Evernote file, which is what is edited.

I keep only one version of documents; and store them in Evernote

Is there a reason you're saving the original? If yes, I would store a file link in Evernote instead of a copy

Of course you can export the updated copy from Evernote to replace your "original copy"

Evernote does not allow this. When you add a file to an Evernote note as an attachment, it's stored in the note, and is completely separate from the original file. When you invoke an editor on a note attachment, Evernote writes its copy out to disk, and that's what you're editing; when you save, the modified Evernote copy is pulled back into Evernote. If you want to edit the original file, then you can do that, but you'd need to then replace the Evernote version of the file with the one that you edited, and hope that the Evernote copy was not edited separately, since you'd probably lose those changes.
