Opening and editing attachments in Mail app iOS9

iOS & iPadOS

I am having problems being able to open attachments in the general mail appp on an iPad mini running iOS 9. When I tap them to bring up the menu it just gives me the options of copy, select, select all, speak and share. Not the normal options I found in iOS 8. While we are discussing this could someone help me with how to edit attachments as these are some papers I need to fill out for Vocational rehab and US Small business.
All your help will be much appreciated.

What type of attachments are you using? Are you using Pdf?

The attachments I am recieving are a variety but mainly doc with a few pdf and a few spreadsheets which I think are excel....
I am even having issues opening these since the update to iOS9 update. I have never edited a attachment, doc or pdf in iOS as I am fairly new to apple products and prior to my vision loss used a PC. Thank you

I got them opened and saved to my icloud drive.... Here is what we figured out as the attachments were in a thread.... I had to go to the orginal message which was 2 of 2 in the thread to open them as in the reply thread they were only images..... which was 1 of 1 in the thread....
I have not attempted to edit these yet, but I did get them opened and saved to a location where I hope not to have issues with them. Thanks for the help :) Applevis has been an amazing resource since I have become reliant on a screen reader:D
