Thanks. I've done that---connected to my Google Drive. I can't just open a file and then save it. I've pointed ShiftEdit to the right folder, whether I click, double click, or right click, I get the perpetual circle of loading and can't access folders in the far left column. Now, the only way I can access from the designated folder is to download and I can save by uploading. Is this what I'm supposed to do if I'm using my GDrive? I can open the current file in the preview pane, but once again, to view in Chrome, I have to go through my files. I thought I could perform all of those functions from within ShiftEdit, but the documentation is vague.
The lack of detail is what has confounded me. I'm an excellent writer and editor and would be glad to help flesh out the docs if needed.
