I am working on a document with track changes on. Sometimes, but not always, when I select text, many options get grayed out. This includes all items in the formatting toolbar and many in the standard toolbar. It seems to depend on which text is selected but I cannot determine the pattern. It happens with both .odt and .docx files.
When I try to delete some selected text in .docx file that has this issue (have not seen this in .odt file), an error message appears saying that “Write-protected text cannot be changed.”
I am running Windows 10 on a 64-bit computer with LO 126.96.36.199. The document was written by someone else and sent to me in Word. There are no passwords.
I am attaching the file and a screenshot in case the problem can be replicated and someone can figure out what is going on.
(Edit: activated docx + screenshot -AK)
