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?
The online editor only supports Google Docs (
You can import from
1. enabling "Upload Settings" > "Convert uploaded files to Google Docs format"
2. Right clicking an uploaded
.odt and "Open with" Google Docs, a copy of
.gdoc will be created
You can also "Download as odt".
Indeed the formatting are not 100% compatible and that causes issues.
Or maybe someone could develope an live editor for
.odt as Drive connected app these days.

.odt document and edited it with Google Docs.
When you first open the file, you get a preview:
Now just click
Open and it will open it in Google Docs.
Sorry no, Google stopped supporting .odt around 2005.
