I use a number of computers with ,,Linux Slax " , if I make a document on one, it opens in an other as read only. That's not handy, How can I change that ?

If you click on the Edit File icon on the top menu, do you get a message like

"This document cannot be edited, possibly due to missing access rights. Do you want to edit a copy of the document?"

If so, the issue is at the filesystem level; the file (copied from another computer? and created by a different username?) does not have write permission for the user attempting to open it. You will need to use a Linux tool, perhaps chown at the command line, to grant write access to the files.
