Libreoffice 18.104.22.168 (Flatpak install) on Ubuntu 20.04
In a flatpak install of Libreoffice 7, a “Document in use” appears whenever you open a document that is locked one or another way.
This becomes very annoying it you regularly need to view office documents from on line links. Is there a way to disable that dialog and have the link immediately opened read-only in Writer?
Previous “regular” installations behaved differently. In 22.214.171.124, regular .deb install, the same document would open immediately, with a blue message bar appearing on top"This document is open in read-only mode" appearing on top . The blue bar provides a button “Edit Document”.
A flatpak install of 126.96.36.199 also causes the dialog to appear.
