Hello! I am trying to open files stored in nextcloud - openoffice spreadsheets and text documents. I have been unable this morning, to open and view in a browser.

Do you know what might be happening?

I have tried firefox and chrome - osx.

I am able to download and open on my own machine locally.

Hi. I'm not sure if this applies to your document but we've had some reports of issues when members are working on the same documents collaboratively with a mix of editing on the desktop and through the web interface. We suggest working entirely through the web interface if more than one person will be editing.

For your current document the quickest fix I can offer is the following:

  • create a new document through the web interface
  • open your original document in your desktop office app
  • copy the contents of your original document from your desktop app to the new web document and continue editing there

Hi! Thanks so much for this suggestion. I tried creating a new document and am unable also to open it through the web interface.

I see, it looks like the actual collabora sub application might be down. I've just restarted it. Can you try again now?

Yes! It's working now. Thank you!
