Running SharePlusMac 2.1. with Microsoft office 2011 of Mac OS X, 10.7.3.
Having trouble opening documents in Microsoft Word (from the server). opening from Microsoft Word(local copy) is fine but is read only so does not allow editing, same with Powerpoint, Excel seems ok though.
Thank you for posting at IG forums!
Please try right-click over the document in SharePlus then Open from Server.
Do you get any messages from Office? Office 2011 is supposed to support editing from the server directly.
A simple workaround if Office doesn't let you edit is to drag and drop the document to Finder, edit it, then drag and drop it back to SharePlus.
thanks for your reply, no we didnt get any error message at all from Offcie when trying to open from the server. However, in the meantime we have recieved a new customised build which seems to have solved the problem, we can now open and edit from the server happily.
Hi I'm having the same problem with office 2008. i can't open the server file. Opens Excel but no file loads.
I am seeing the exact same issue. I was able to open and edit documents from the server in the version prior to 2.1. Since upgrading to 2.1, I can no longer open documents from the server.
Seems to be a bug in the new version
Just chiming in, I have the same problem - when I edit an SP item, I can only edit the properties. I can launch blank docs in the client application.
I should note that I'm evaluating this for a contingent of 150+ Mac users who want to improve their SP experience.
