    Hi people!
    Just got a .docx attachment in mail. Haven't got many of these so I don't know if this file is extra grumpy of if its general (I assume .doc plays much more smoothly).
    Anyway, Mail can't open it. I also have Documents (by Readdle) but it doesn't open. Opening in Evernote makes it a new note, but it doesn't open. My last change was to send it to Google Drive and it shows a thumbnail for it but just a blank screen when I click on it.
    The file looks perfectly fine when I open it on my Mac (Office 11).

    So, what options are there for me? I'd like to become less and less dependent on my computer..
    Word viewers? Word-to-pdf converters? Cloud word-to-pdf convert services?

    Thanks!

    Save the attachment to your desktop (or as otherwise desired) and then open it with TextEdit. That works for me. Or does that not work for you?
