Turn off cell protection [closed]

I have an ods file that I use to store translations

I have had a lot of problems with it over the years due to various bugs in Calc. One of those is that often times Calc will report that a cell is protected when I try to change a value (I never ever tried to protect the document, sheet or cell). In most cases, despite the annoying popup, it will actually change the value, a bug in itself, but in other cases it won't allow me to change the value, which is worse, since I can't turn it off.

When I go to format cell, it also reports that it can't be formatted because it's protected, but the protected checkbox is turned on. When I turn it off, I get the same message and when I get back to the Format Cells popup, it's checked again.

Neither sheet or document is protected. I don't want it, I don't need it. How do I turn it off, rip it out, get rid of this bs? Reporting bugs doesn't seem to help because I reported this and a number of other blocking bugs that have been around for years various times. So, excuse me if I'm tried of this shit.

And by the way, your Facebook signin doesn't work. It goes to signup.

Cheers, Marc

Do you have the same problem with a file from scratch?, what file format do you use to save?
