        On iPhone I am not given the option to upload .txt files to OneDrive anymore. Until a couple days ago I could, and did frequently. Now it just doesn’t even give the option, but only for txt files. I updated OneDrive still nothing. It gives the option when uploading a screenshot or pic but just not txt files. Seems like a recently developed glitch in the app since I was doing this 100’s of times previous to about 4/12/18. Hope you can fix this, not being able to upload a simple txt file is a huge hindrance in what I use this for. Doesn’t even give the option to convert txt to a PDF then upload as it used to do prior to this date as well. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.

        The ability to edit Plain Text in the OneDrive browser will make work flow much more efficient. I work across document platforms and find plan text very helpful. Having to download and upload is a time killer.

        This seems to be a trend with functionality being available and then disappearing with other Microsoft products (including this one). Editing text files is a basic feature that is already available in the competitor's products, so the same capabilities should be here, in OneDrive.

        This option was already available a couple versions back, why did it get removed? If it doesnt get added back I will have to move all files to notepad, and get rid of onedrive.
