Subject Readonly on Password-protected Documents (was: NewWikiMainPage)
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2012 12:15:56 GMT
Dear Phil,

    Reading again, I found that this is unrelated to Wiki.  I renamed
the subject.

    I cannot verify this on my 3.4.0, 3.3.0 and 3.2.1, Debian linux
x86_64.  What OpenOffice version and OS version are you using?

Also I could not remove the password by unclicking the box.

Is there a way to password protect , but not have the document as "Read Only" when next opened.
