I received a .odt (actually the 4.4 Press release) in my mail on my Android device. Double clicking on the attachement starts the viewer, then it terminates. I do not know if it crashes.
If I save the document first I can open it nicely in the viewer.
Device: Nexus 5
Android version: 5.01
Viewer installed via Google Play.
I can confirm with Version: 184.108.40.206.alpha0+
Build ID: 802b80fcd378d5788adff1c7c98af526651a30c2
works with gmail - so must be some quirk in other mail programs - so K9 mail is mentioned - what mailprogram does Luc use?
The mail-app should send a corresponding Intent that the Viewer picks up. The Viewer (in current versions) will try to copy the data to a temporary file and then open that.
That copy file to temp even has different handlings for K9 mail vs gmail already when opening csv (they use different mimetypes, and the viewer needs to make sure it has csv extension to open in calc mode), so it works in principle/when that code was written
And would be nice if you could provide a logcat when trying to open it. (Is it the mimetype matching or the creation of a temporary file that fails?)
Or - more surprising - the actual loading of the file (as downloading the file first does work, according to the report)
works for me with Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+

I have a similar problem opening a .docx attachment. I tried to open it from the gmail app, started the viewer, then the viewer immediately terminates with the toast message "This file is read-only, saving is disabled."
Device: Nexus 5
Android version 5.1
assume it's duplicate.
if you can still reproduce next week (in other words with the next version of the apk that I'll upload within the next two days), then please feel free to reopen
