Sample DOC file

Hi,

The new editing / Read only mode toolbar(1) is not visible on DOC files. I think it is because the Edit Mode button is removed from the default toolbar and it is not activated while viewing DOC files.

If you add the button to the toolbar again and activate it (or press Ctrl + Shift + M) the new warning bar appears.

On the other hand, if you save the document with 'Open in Read Only mode' checkbox checked. The file will be opened without the new warning bar. İf Edit mode button is active, the file is opened in edit mode. Word 2013 opens in edit mode i/o read only too.

Password for attached files:

Opening Password: a
Editing password: b (if asked)

Best regards,
Zeki

This is not related to the change made in 4.4, as opening the document in 4.3.5 behaves in the same manner. The 4.4 change was for a read-only file at the system level, while this is a read-only file at the document level.

How does one activate edit mode after an edit password has been set?

I agree. The Issue is reproducible with your indications.

Step by step:
1. File> Open> Pass-test-DOC.doc
2. Give the password (a), Document opens

Expected result: read only info toolbar should be displayed
Actual result: it is not

Platform: Windows 7/64 & Version: 4.4.4.2
Build ID: f784c932ccfd756d01b70b6bb5e09ff62e1b3285
Locale : fr_FR

So I set status to New. Thank you for reporting.

The additional information requested is on another bug: unable to edit the document after clicking the Edit button.

The same behaviour with win 7 LO 4.4.6 , LO 5.2.7 and LO 6.0.0 :read only info toolbar not visible by default in doc file, only after Ctrl + Shift + M and not editable too (Bug #89385).

With LO 6.0.0  even when open odt file protected for editing,
read only mode toolbar does not appear at all (seems like regression in comparison with  5.2.7).
