iPad: I cannot open *.afpub files stored on Google Drive. The option is greyed out

Good morning,

I switched from Affinity 1 to Universal Licence Affinity V2.

When I use Affinity publisher on my iPad I cannot open a file stored on google Drive. I just cannot tap on it to open it.

But if I move the file to the Affinity publisher folder stored locally, then it works! Why? 

Not being able to work on afpub files stored online defeat the purpose of working seamlessly between Mac and iPad

How can I solve that?

Thank you very much

This is a known issue with Google Drive. They are still trying to figure it out and find a solution (if not relay to Google for them to fix even).

‘All other Cloud Services like Dropbox, OneDrive etc are working fine without any issues.

Thank you @StudioJason! Had no idea.

So basically, there is nothing that I can do, right? 😕

It's really sad, to be honest. I wish I knew before, but, well... that's life.

Have a good day every one!

Well…transfer any Files from Google Drive to your iCloud, as one option…or simply to your iPad, then create a Free Dropbox Account, for another. Heard that One Drive was useable. I use Dropbox all the time, have Google Drive…use several if free, use whatever works!
