Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 460124
[Desktop] [Openoffice] - Read-Only Feature behaving wrongly
Last modified: 2008-08-26 10:33:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Read-only Function working wrongly, seems so! Once the red-only option is clicked for any file, it can not be revert back to normal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any file in OOo, oowriter, oocalc, ooimpress, etc
2. Go to Tools -> Options -> Security
3. Click the Option "Open this document in read-only mode"
4. Save the Document.
5. Reopen it, try to do the same undo the click.
6. Close the document.
7. Reopen it, and see if "undo read-only" took effect.
Documents still showing as read-only and the read-only is clicked by default.
It should revert or disable the read-only feature for that file.
Well, it's read-only isn't it :-)
I'd say the real bug is that the option is possible to click when the document is read-only as it has no effect unless the document is saved.
To un-readonly a document the "right thing to do" is to click on the "edit file" button, then unclick the "save as read-only" and do a save/close (and get prompted to save)
Filed a patch at http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=93142 to do that. I feel that this is sufficiently minor quirk that it isn't a RHEL update candidate and can be handled upstream.
Agreed. We will verify the bug in Fedora. Would you like us to clone this bug to Fedora for tracking purpose?
Nah, its logged against the responsible engineer upstream. I'll abide by his decision one way or the other.
