Great extension. The only thing is that each time I open a Microsoft document the system asks me to 'Enable Editing' and then when I make changes to the doc and save it's not able to save it to my Google Drive and instead I have to save it to my local drive which defeats the purpose. Is there a way to solve this issue?
