Hi,

When I start Write to create a new document (File -> New -> Text Document. // OO2.2.)
I get a document in read only mode only.

Can't enter anything. It's only Write. Works fine with Spreadsheets, Presentations, etc.

Also if I open an exisiting document, I get into "read only" and can change the document. Edit button is enabled, but only gets me to 'real' read only mode if clicked.

Please help...

Have you a custom template ? Maybe it's read only, hence the setting cascaded to new documents.

Might have been a permition problem. Also there might be issues with the location of the documents. For example if the document is in a read-only partition.

Please go to Save As > and then see if the read-only gets disabled.

This was under WINXP. Sorted now.

Had designed a form with a few fields filled from a DB (base). Looked OK after save first time.

Somehow however a link to the DB remained 'active' after closing OpenOffice and disallowed any additional editing of the form. Had to delete the database and start all over. Not sure what the reason was in the first place. No error message or crashes, etc.
