    Google Drive (docs) doesn't actually open any files...

    For some reason whenever I open up a document in Drive, the document opens but no text ever appears. The document was created in Drive, never opened on another device, and for some reason whenever I open it to view again, the circle spins for ages then stops, but it just looks like a blank sheet of paper. To actually see text I have to open the document for editing. It's driving me crazy, I use it for speaking notes when teaching and making presentations, it would be so much nicer to just open the document to view it instead of having to open it in edit mode.

    HELP!!

    Welcome to the forum

    My first thought is that you may have created the document or tried opening it in Polaris. If that's the case, all bets are off.

    Polaris has some nagging faults that among others cause this type of problem for some people. imo Drive isn't that great a solution anyway. Try DropBox or Box.net (Box in the Google Store).

    This is not the first time I've read this on the forum. Other than trying something like Kingsoft Office or one of the other free office apps I don't have any other suggestions.

    Thanks for the help, unfortunately I am only using Google docs, not Polaris. Which I guess means that I have to keep searching for answers!
