The following steps require a Windows share (two separate local installs should behave closely similarly, but perhaps not identically).
- open a document that is on the share from one computer (eg. the same one),
- try to open the same file via the share from another computer, then choose to open the file in read-only mode,
- click Edit Document in the infobar.
=> You get the following, rather uninformative dialog:
"This document cannot be edited, possibly due to missing access rights. Do you want to edit a copy of the document?
Open Copy / Cancel"
Since the situation is same as before, a dialog with the same or close to same information should pop up (though perhaps the choices are different, since the file is already open).
Observed using LO 220.127.116.11.alpha0+ (c2cb467a1e5194c56bb65706b7965fb2c9241b8f), 18.104.22.168 / Windows 7.
