AFter updating from LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11, all documents previously created became READ ONLY and I could not unlock them. I tried to save a document with a new name and I was told I did not have permission to save to my normal folders in Windows. I tried opening and saving the same documents in MS Word 2010 and Word Perfect X6 and there was no problem. I have WP and MS Word but I mostly prefer Libre Office because of the flexibility in switching between English and German. I uninstalled LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 and reinstalled 22.214.171.124 and the problem disappeared. The only difference in my installation of the newer build of LibreOffice was that I opted to let LibreOffice start when Window (8.1) opened. When I reinstalled 126.96.36.199, I did not opt to open Libre Office when Windows started.
Would you be willing to try with 5.2.1?
