Help with Google Drive?

Postby Edam » Mon Jun 18, 2012 7:23 am

I don't know if I'm just being stupid but I can't seem to quite get the hang of google drive. I've got a folder set up on my computer with all my files and that's synced with Drive. All is well and good until it comes to trying to edit the documents on android.

I have the app which works and I can see the synced files. Most of them are .xls, need to be .xls and I don't want to convert them.

However, I can't seem to edit them. They open in Polaris Office but I can't save any changes. I can put the file in Offline Mode and that then seems to let me edit and save. Problem is, it stores the files in some random folder in my data folder on my device. This is also a massive pain in the arse if I have to individually set every file to offline one by one!

Is there any way to mirror/replicate my Google Drive folder and its substructures on my Android device so that I can just go into that folder, use and edit the files as I please and trust that they sync up ok? I can do that from Windows, why can't I seem to do it from Android?
