Document has become read-only

Postby stephwrites » Tue Aug 18, 2009 8:42 pm

I've used OO for several years but never had a problem before. Somehow, one of my odt documents has become read-only. Is there a way to change it back to edit mode. I looked in Help but it didn't help :crazy:

Right Click on the file in Windows Explorer. Select Tools, and mak sure the Read Only checkbox is unticked. Ok out. Now try your file in OpenOffice.
