Access Google Drive in LibreOffice from Linux container in Chrome OS

I am able to successfully install LibreOffice 6.2 into a Linux container in Chrome OS 73 on my Samsung Chromebook Plus and my Acer Chromebook R11. The installation creates LO icons that can be activated within the native Chrome OS environment. When opening one of the LO apps (e.g. Writer), I am unable to access documents that are in my Google Drive. Actually, I cannot even access documents outside of the Linux container. If I want to edit a file in LO, I have to copy the file into a folder that resides in the Linux container using the Chrome OS file manager. Is this a limitation in LO or a limitation in Chrome OS?
