This app does not work. In shared Drives, the Excalidraw menu options are not available. In personal Drives, the options are available. However, when selecting these options, I get an error: "We can’t connect to the server at excalidraw.app." This particular error message is from Firefox, but I was met with a similar error when trying Chrome.

I like this very much. But unfortunately there is a bug, that makes it very difficult for me to use it. Since the auto saving feature, whenever I start a line at the same time the auto saving is saving, the line is not drawn. Therefore after I write with the mouse some text, I notice that some letters are missing. A quick fix would be to just allow to turn off auto saving. Is it possible?

Hi Andrew, does this plugin work in Google Shared drives? I tested in my personal drive, it works, however after moving the file to the shared drive, the file cannot be opened, edited or previewed from the shared drive. What do I need to do to enable this?

After the initial authentication issue (fixed by logging out and back in) I learned that it's a far worse implementation of Excalidraw than the original. Slow performance, quirks and most importantly - no shared sessions. Using this for collaboration is impossible. For me that's a show stopper, but if you're gonna use it alone and don't mind the quirks and slowness, I guess being able to manage your files in Drive is nice.

For those who got this error - "Cannot create new file. Make sure you're logged into appropriate account", the following workaround help me fix it. 1. Sign out (on the top-right corner) 2. Click Authorize 3. I check both checkboxes 4. after that, it works! 🎉

Yeah seems ok - really appreciate having this. - No Shared Sessions is definitely a down side.

Works perfectly! - If you can't get it going it's probably in the authorisation process to authorise google to use /link into your account. This was the problem i had -

This app in its current state does not do any of the things it claims to, including but not limited to creating or editing ANYTHING, or even opening! Using their instructions, trying to open a document results in nothing more than "Cannot create new file. Make sure you're logged into appropriate account" to show up on the screen. There doesn't seem to be any way around this. All this app lets you do is install itself and uninstall itself, other than that, nothing, not even opening.

This app works good for me. I saved $7 from excalidraw subscriptions. Thanks to the dev.
