Has always been a great app but is slowly losing functionality and doesn't seem to be supported/updated anymore

I see different issues and complaints with very little support...and that is worrie sum...

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?
