I appreciate this is a recurring question on these forums and I’ve searched through previous answers on this forum but no suggested solution has so far managed to permanently remove ‘Read Only’ from my spreadsheets and documents.
Background: I run Windows 10 and also use Ubuntu trial (live?) - from a USB memory stick - on a desktop PC. I’m at the stage where I will soon create a dual boot PC with Ubuntu as my main operating system but I have problems when running Ubuntu that I’d like to address first.
When running Ubuntu trial, all my documents, new and old, open as ‘Read Only’, as do spreadsheets, yet I’ve never made any file ‘Read Only’ (tell a lie, there may have been just the one spreadsheet - can’t be sure). Files that open as ‘Read Only’ include .doc, .docx and .odf documents and .xls and .ods spreadsheets. However, these same files do not open as ‘Read Only’ when running Windows10 so I currently have to use W10 for editing (note: I use LibreOffice (v: 220.127.116.11)and Microsoft Office when running W10 and just LibreOffice (v: 18.104.22.168)when running Ubuntu trial).
Is this happening because Ubuntu is just a trial? Would I be able to edit files when Ubuntu is installed? Thanks for your consideration.
