Opening existing files

Postby Jace » Thu Jan 18, 2018 7:17 am

I have been using open office 4.1.3 and when ever I click on an existing file, Open office states the file is already open and I need to open a copy and then save it as a new file name.
My version of open Office is as of today 4.1.5 running on windows 10

HI and welcome to the forum!

Display the hidden files and folder and you should see a file starting by .~lock. Delete it and try again to open it.

Please add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 19.04 and 4.1.5 on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).
