Hello! :)

First of all, I'd like to say that this is a wonderful site, but.. That's not why I'm posting here. The problem is that I cannot unlock a locked Word Document. I can view all the text, but I cannot type any more, delete anything, or cut, copy, or paste.

I don't even know how I locked it.. How do I "unlock"" a "locked" document?

Thanks Again,

Kitsune The Great

1. It could also be a read-only document (right-click its icon > Properties > General tab).

2. You could moreover (if you've disabled simple file-sharing) belong as a user in a group that has not been granted the appropriate security/sharing admission (right-click its icon > Properties > Security tab).
