Dear Fletcher,

I don’t know whether this is intentional, but there is no “Open In...” option in the Share Sheet of MMDC for iOS. Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

    Sorry for the delay -- getting caught up with some old messages.

    I'm not sure what you mean -- I get the "Copy to ..." for any app
    capable of opening the selected file type when sharing.

    The latest version changes the GUI for getting into sharing, but the
    fundamental functionality is the same.

    Thank you for getting back to me on that, Fletcher.

    You are right: I too get "Copy to..." from the Share Sheet of MMDC for iOS; some apps, however, have the option to open the file without copying it. For example, in the Files app I can share a pdf and open it in the Documents app or in PDF Viewer, without copying it to these apps. It's not that I am missing that functionality in MMDC for iOS: I simply thought I would point that out in case the absence of the "Open in..." option in the Share Sheet of MMDC for iOS was unintentional. Thank you for looking into that.

    Best regards,

    In Composer these files (e.g. HTML) are not going to be kept -- they are
    temporary files created for you to do something with them (e.g. email
    them to a colleague, store them in Dropbox, etc.) So it wouldn't make
    sense to edit them in place with another program.

    Makes perfect sense, Fletcher; thank you for the clarification.
