Public Links usable in community edition?

It’s not clear to me whether public links are usable in the community edition or not. I found some forum posts saying that this is a pro feature, but in the user manual I can find the instructions on how to create public links and in the feature comparison between community and pro, public links are stated in both.
I’m using Community Edition 9 and I can’t choose options like preview and download, or preview only when creating links.
I can share files, but only so that they can be downloaded. But I would like them to be editable online as well.

You need the pro edition for this. In CE, share links are limited to download/upload (and preview for some file types like img or pdf)

That’s a clear statement, thank you.

Then what is the cloud mode for? I don’t really understand that either.
