2019-01-02 00:00:50 +0200 marked best answer How Can We Turn Off File Locking in the Mac Version?

I would like to turn off file locking, which the ReadMe file describes as on by default. I write with two computers and share files between them via DropBox. Files created with one machine cannot be opened by the other. (!@#$%$#)

The ReadMe file that comes with version 6.1.4.2 for Mac OS advises: ''To disable file locking, edit the soffice script and change the line "export SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING" to "# export SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING".

Sounds simple, like configuring PHP. But when I try to edit the soffice file—which I found inside the LibreOffice application package-->contents-->MacOS-->soffice, I do not see ascii text as given in the ReadMe file. Instead, it looks like hex code. And indeed, the system sees the 'soffice' file as a UNIX executable.

There's gotta be a way to do this, right? Can some kind soul tell me how?
