Created attachment 119479 [details]

The document includes a flow chart however when I try to edit it, this does not open and remains reading as 'read only'.

Maybe there is some report for this already, but I could not find a dupe.

Maybe this one @Beluga:
Arrow tool in draw function toolbar in Writer

But in this case I think is in relation on how the object was inserted in Writer, in fact it hasn't name. It is an OLE object and.

<o:OLEObject r:id="rId4" ObjectID="_689247626" DrawAspect="Content" ShapeID="ole_rId4" ProgID="Visio.Drawing.11" Type="Embed"/>

Seems it is a Visio object

Double click the object opens Draw in a not editable mode but selecting the whole diagram and pasting it in Writer, lets edit the object directly in Writer.
But it CAN NOT be saved in docx, fine with odt.
Perhaps this one is another issue, I don't know if a Draw object can be saved in docx.

I'm not sure it is an issue.
