Sample DOC file


When saving a doc file with both opening password and editing password. The Opening password works but, you cannot enter editing password from anywhere. CTRL + Shift + M or Edit button from toolbar is not working.

The popup says write protect file cannot be changed. There is no way to edit the file.

Passwords for attached sample:

Opening Password: a
Edit password: b

Still reproducible in Version: (x64) Win 7
With attached doc file no password input box and not editable,
but with new created  doc file editable and no input box for enter  password to edit.

When create new file in LO and save as doc or docx file with password for open and for edit, it is write protected and can not be edit. I was not asked to input password for edit.

confirmed: opening password is requested.
Editing is possible by going to Format - Sections - and removing the protected status from the section (no password is requested).

I didn't see a duplicate in the META bug, but I expect I've seen this before...
