mergDoc - no preview, no sharing

Is there anybody who can confirm that the iOS external
mergDoc plays nicely in an iOS 11.2 or iOS 11.3.1 environment?

I am particularly interested to know if handler mergDocShowPreview
and “Copy to …” share extensions using mergDocShowOpenInMenu
or the share button work.

My tests using the mergDoc.livecode demo in LC 9.0 as well as in LC 8.1.10
produced the following results so far:

Files tested: .docx, ppsx, .txt, .pages, .pdf, .png

Device: iOS 11.2 on iPad Pro 10.5 inch

mergDocShowPreview worked for .png files only
“Copy to …” share extensions using mergDocShowOpenInMenu
or the share button fails although mergDocCanOpen() returns true,
the modal just shows the file name and “Office Open XML show” for
.ppsx files as an example

Simulator: iOS 11.2 on iPad Pro 10.5 inch

mergDocShowPreview works for all files
“Copy to …” share extensions using mergDocShowOpenInMenu
or the share button can not be tested


Device: iOS 11.3.1 on iPad Air

mergDocShowPreview works for all files
“Copy to …” share extensions using mergDocShowOpenInMenu
or the share button fails although mergDocCanOpen() returns true,
the modal just shows the file name and “Office Open XML show” for
.ppsx files as an example

Simulator: iOS 11.2 on iPad Air

mergDocShowPreview works for all files
“Copy to …” share extensions using mergDocShowOpenInMenu
or the share button: can not be tested
