Sharing Compatibility

Sharing Compatibility

Microsoft word has some features that Google Docs doesn't work properly with, such as a table of contents. In a shared folder with word documents containing a table of contents, users opened the documents in Google Docs, which automatically removed all the styles applied in word and instead manually applied the styles. Further, Docs changed the table of contents, causing it to render improperly in MS Word.

My idea is to make a setting for a shared folder so that the owner can force users to open certain documents in either word for the web or, at least, open them locally. This would avert compatibility issues with Google Docs.
