Description david.cortes.rivera 2022-03-17 20:32:31 UTC
If I have a .xls file which is password-protected, open it with Calc, then click "Save As", the saved file will not be password-protected anymore.

Steps to reproduce:
- Create a .xls file with MS Excel.
- Inside excel, set a password for opening the file.
- Open the file with LO Calc, using the password that was set before.
- Save the file again from inside Calc through the 'Save As' button.
- Close Calc, open the saved file again with Calc.

Expected result: should ask for the password to open the file.

Actual result: doesn't ask for the password.
