Description Satyabrata Maitra 2008-08-26 07:00:34 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):

How reproducible:

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.
Actual results:
Documents still showing as read-only and the read-only is clicked by default.

Expected results:
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.
Comment 3 Lawrence Lim 2008-08-26 10:20:44 EDT
Agreed. We will verify the bug in Fedora. Would you like us to clone this bug to Fedora for tracking purpose?
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2008-08-26 10:33:01 EDT
Nah, its logged against the responsible engineer upstream. I'll abide by his decision one way or the other.
