Description bmarcelly 2012-03-18 08:49:44 UTC
Since version 3.3 it is possible to have a password protecting a Calc or Writer document from modifications. Such document can be read, not modified.

The API aspect has been forgotten in the development. The consequence is that such documents cannot be created or modified by program.

It should be possible, by API :
- to create a document and save it with a password for write-protection
- to open a write-protected document, modify it if the password is provided, and save it keeping the write-protection.
