I'm using MS Office 2013. I created a simple Word document with the words "This is a test document" then saved it and attached to a JIRA cloud issue using the "Browse" link. When I try to click it in the issue to open it, it downloads it but then gives a pop-up window "Word experienced an error trying to open the file."
We just noticed the problem for the first time this weekend. What's up?
Does this happens with all word docs you use? Last time I saw that it was protected view that was giving me the headache :
Try above method and see if it will do the trick.
That did it for me, Lavitz. Thanks! A more seamless way to work with Word attachments in JIRA Cloud would be nice - since I experience the problem even if I upload the file and then download it again. At least you pointed me in the right direction! Eventually, we'll move to Confluence.
