Alfresco Share Online Editing

I've run into a small problem with Alfresco Share. I have the SharePoint protocol configured, but when I click on "Edit Online" for a Microsoft Office document, the file opens as an embedded object in an IE window, instead of opening Word or Excel directly. The problem with this is, that I can't save the document when it's opened like this, the option is grayed out in the file menu. If I select "Save As…" and save the file with the same name to the SharePoint server, the file is saved. Or, in IE8, if I select "Edit this file in Microsoft Office Word" from the file menu, I can break out of the IE window, and Word will save the file correctly.

Am I missing something, or is this just how online editing works for MS Office documents?
