Re-open a recently opened sheet.
At that point most edit commands are disabled.
This is a known bug upstream, fixed in the 1.8 branch in git.
Patch 9932dc2cafe66b752e965175a3cbe9889819feb5 in git seems to fix the problem (I tried with and without) and therefor, unless there is a release of 1.8.5, I think it should be included in the package as it is major functionality break.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I can't edit any saved file, not only "recently opened sheet". In Fedora 10 gnumeric was fine.

Since gnumeric is not usable I'm surprised to see how few people use it in Fedora 11. I rebuild the Fedora RPM with the patch mentioned above and it works.
Today I tried to install gnumeric-1.8.4-3.fc12.x86_64.rpm from hawhide but got:
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by gnumeric-1:1.8.4-3.fc12.x86_64
(1, [u'Please report this error in http://yum.baseurl.org/report'])
I don't know if it's intended for F11 anyway...
There is an update in F11 to provide xz compression support for rpm packages. But I would be you, I wouldn't try this f12 package anyway.
A usable workaround I have found for this bug is to enter a value into a cell (doesn't matter what or which) on the new document it presents you upon loading. After you do that if you open another document, it should let you edit it as normal (you can close without saving the document it starts up with after this without bad things happening).
Be sure that you don't just type something and try to open the document. Hit enter or click on another cell first to fully set the contents. It won't work otherwise.
I have put this patch is a scratch build at:
Can you please test if this works for you.
I can then import it into rawhide as well as the F11 tree?
working for me:-)
when would you like to release this build?
unfortunately that build no longer available:-(
