Unable to open documents for editing

Postby HWSHO » Thu Jul 04, 2019 11:19 am

Recently I have not been able to open any Writer documents for editing. For some recent documents I get a message that the document is used by someone else and do I want to open it just for reading or a copy. Trying to open older documents nothing happens. It seems, that with other documents, pictures and pdf, there is on problem.

Best wishes,
