Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-07-01 06:03:09 UTC
Steps how to reproduce with  "AOO 4.0.0-Dev – German UI / locale [AOO400m2(Build:9701)  -  AOO400m2(Build:9701)  -  Rev. 1497734 Rev.1496828  2013-06-28]" on WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", Common 4.0-dev User Profile:

1. From AOO Start Center open new Writer Document
2. type few characters
3. Menu 'File -> Properties -> Security' check "File Sharing Options -> Open 
   file read-only" <ok>
4. Save as  "sample.odt"
5. Menu 'File -> Close'
6. Reopen from menu 'File -> Recent documents'
   Expected: Opens write protected
   Actual: You can edit the document, not opened read-only

The behavior might be more or less intended, because it should be possible to break the write protection "somehow", for example by saving the document under a new name, and during proceeding you saved "Untitled.odt" as "sample.odt" (under new name).

But that might be unexpected, may be user simply wanted to correct a typo in the file name or similar when he saved the document. The Document still is write protected after it has been saved, nothing indicates that the document no longer will be "read-only" after save and reopen. 

So I think there should be a message "Document will loose write protection" or similar when the write protected document will be saved, or the saved document (with new name) should become editable immediately, or something else should indicate that after reopen the document will no longer be write protected.
