Since I updated my stable version of Libre Office to version 126.96.36.199 (x64) recently, I’ve noticed that documents (.odt) which were once password protected no longer have that, often. E.g. prior to updating, when I changed the document, the password protection would function normally. Often now, when I change the document and save it, it just saves it without requiring the password. Because of this, since then, when I save these documents I tick the box to have it be password protected but that isn’t a reliable fix for the problem, as I’ve already done that multiple times.
So, whilst opening the document will require that I enter a password in twice, when I edit the document that requirement for a password no longer functions and the box for saving with a password is unticked, even though since these problems arose, I’ve started ticking that box.
How can you fix this issue?
Maybe I should mention that when I save changes to this document, I make a copy on another USB drive. In the past, I’ve had issues where when I open the document, it’s in Read Only mode for some reason, so I have found the programme buggy in the past, for whatever reason.
