Is there any way to edit an .odt file directly in Google Docs which was created with LibreOffice Writer and uploaded to Google Drive whilst preserving the ODT format and not converting it to Google Docs format to avoid losing formatting?

@rink.attendat.6 Thanks for your review! I just realised that indeed it was hard to understand what I actually want. –  orschiro Jan 13 at 6:49

The online editor only supports Google Docs (.gdoc) format.

You can import from .odt by:
1. enabling "Upload Settings" > "Convert uploaded files to Google Docs format"
2. Right clicking an uploaded .odt and "Open with" Google Docs, a copy will be of .gdoc created

You can also "Download as odt".
Indeed the formatting are not 100% compatible and that causes an issue.
Or maybe someone could develope an live editor for .odt as Drive connected app these days.

Sorry no, Google stopped supporting .odt around 2005.
