It should never be the consuming programs duty to implement an API to use cloud storage. That would require writing new code for every one that comes out.

If they want to claim they support it, then they need to write the code to actually support it.

*If* they claim to support it sure but I found one passing mention of Google Drive anywhere on the HL website and it wasn't in anything about HL accessing .por files from it.

I have the same issue with Google Drive. I understand the change but they add it to the app update, they must have tested it? No response from someone at wolflair?

It's now 2/17/2018 and I can't import any of my .por files from Google Drive on my iPad. LoneWolf, please fix this issue!

I am also having this issue. It's now 2/17/2018 and it's not working to open .por files on an iPad using Google Drive. Greyed out. C'mon LoneWolf! Fix this...

I have no idea why you're having this issue but I've pointed it out to the dev who handles these things and hopefully he will have an answer for us tomorrow.

Hi everyone,

On the iPad, we support Apple's standard "document provider" API, which allows Hero Lab to retrieve files from various cloud services. Unfortunately, this doesn't work for some users who are using google drive - for other users (including me, and everyone at the company who I've asked to test it) it works fine.

This is a known bug which we're hoping to look into soon - as far as I can tell it's a bug with Apple's APIs (not our software), but I'm hoping to be able to work around it somehow. Sorry for the inconvenience, everyone!

Help
Are you using a computer or an IPad? And importantly, what version of your operating system on either? I was using an IPad 3 which is limited to IOS 9.3.5 and I was able to export to Google Drive but not import. Dropbox and ICloud work fine.

@Colen - On my Mac, importing from Google Drive into HeroLab works without issue. Its only on my iPad where this fails. Have the staff test with iPads.
