Editing OpenOffice files on my tablet, ends up with a duplicate of the file.

Editing OpenOffice files on my tablet, ends up with a duplicate of the file.

Anyone else having trouble editing an Open Document Sheet using an Android?

I use to keep files in sync using Windows (Office), Linux (LibreOffice), and my Android tablet (AndrOpen Office), and all was fine.  I could read or edit from any place w/out a problem.

A few years ago I dumped my Windows box, and added my phone to the mix, but I NEVER edit using the phone (hey, I'm old and my eyes and fingers can't handle it).

Recently, it seem like every time I edit a sheet using the tablet, I end up with a new document like:

     Sheet.ods

     Sheet(1).ods

If I just read using the tablet it's fine.

Any ideas why this could be happpening?

Hey @DonDesjardin, thanks for posting today! 

What version of OS and the Dropbox app is your tablet using? 

Could you also walk me through the exact steps you follow when editing the file? 

Thanks!
