Description Tony 2020-10-05 02:16:16 UTC
Checked on Fedora 32 after unpuck rpm package LibreOffice ver. also checked on distro Q4OS using appimage with same version
I have couple calc files which i saved with password. After reopening them with correct password and trying to "save as" them with new name / or re-save with same name but without password it doesn't work as it should, as when trying to open newly created file or re-saved one it ask for password again. I checked old libre office ver. 6.4 and i see that check box option "Save with password" already selected when i am trying to re-save file without password and just need to unselect it (on ver. all checkboxes unchecked all the time i choose "Save as"). Files i was working with were saved in XLSX format

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create new Calc file and save it with password as XLSX file. Close file.
2.Re-open that file and using "Save as" save as new file without selecting "Save with password. 
3.Try to open newly saved file.

Actual Results:
On opening it will ask again for password

Expected Results:
Should not ask for password

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Rule of thumb is search before reporting.

> Rule of thumb is search before reporting.

I disagree, and I actively discourage users from searching before submitting bugs. Thank you to every report by user; and they would have hard time searching for something worded freely, when they may be not native speakers, not fluent with bug trackers, etc. It just doesn't make sense. Please if you have a problem that you believe to be a bug, test it with a fresh version, test it with a fresh user profile - and if it is reproducible then, just go ahead and file it. No need to research: people like me have better chances to find a proper duplicate than a user, for whom the requirement to search is just an obstacle that only may prevent people from contributing.

Thank you Tony; your duplicate is indeed useful, e.g. by increasing dupe count of the original report -> making it more prominent.
