Hi, I had configured a Windows Server 2008 as a Terminal Server. The rest are as good as you wrote. We don't have problems in the Windows systems at the office, home or field. You can convert an older document to the new Word 2013 mode and to the new. Many Word 2013 users report that images sometimes don't stay where they're put—and occasionally jump to another page entirely. It may have started when I changed my antivirus program to Computer Associates instead of McAfee. Also I did try renaming and saving but the new file was also read only I seem to have corrected it but don't exactly know why.
Regards, · Lionel Chen Hi, I had configured a Windows Server 2008 as a Terminal Server. Compatibility mode Sometimes you may need to work with documents that were created in earlier versions of Microsoft Word, such as Word 2010 or Word 2007. I do know the templates are not saved as read-only. Now, all documents are available to be freely edited. Hi, open word then go to file, and follow the steps from the above image.
It is only Word that decides that the files will be deemed to be read-only. You can then save the document and send it back to the person who sent it to you without running into problems. Pinning a folder to Backstage view Using templates A template is a predesigned document you can use to create a new document quickly. I'm not sure what the deal is with that, and it bothers me a bit, but at least it works again. The reason why it defaults to Reading mode is because the document is opened in Read-only mode.
This problem is a very strange one to say the least. When I got my first computer no one ever showed me the proper way to do things. In the screenshot above, the document is in Word 2010 Compatibility Mode, which likely means it was created by Word 2010. They may need it in the older format. Has no one at Microsoft personally observed this problem? Opening the template does not give the above box to chose between read only and edit.
In addition, please save the document to local drive and check if it opened in read-only mode. If Word 2016 let you use modern features, the other person may not be able to view the entire document. Normal mode To exit Compatibility mode, you'll need to convert the document to the current version type. Properties box is not checked read only and other similar files in the same folder open fine. Templates often include custom formatting and designs, so they can save you a lot of time and effort when starting a new project. This shift may soothe your ego if an editor has ripped your prose to shreds. I use Word for Mac 2017 ver.
I tried to follow boopme's instructions but again its the wrong version. The problem was bothering me for the last couple of hours and I've tried everything suggested on the web like changing folders' properties - untick read only - changing attributes etc. Solution: Copy template with document into same folder and make sure that your document is pointing to the local template. Other than the one document I had the read only problem with I see no real difference Compatibility mode seems to open the doc. Open them and convert them like you would another document.
However, newer versions of Word have started to use the. When Word is re-opened it will recreate it, but beware, if you have modified Normal. I rarely need to open them but do need a way to refer to them if needed. Instead, Word's new Simple Markup feature hides tracked changes, marking them with nothing more than a subtle vertical line in the margins. I continually add text to the top of this document as I write E mails. Also I am wondering if I should be converting my regular word doc.
I can have several Word files open at the same time and, on occasions, on only the second save, the file will go read-only. I can have several Word files open at the same time and, on occasions, on only the second save, the file will go read-only. I have made sure that the protected view checkboxes are unchecked, which usually fixes this issue. We experience the same thing, and you are right, you should not have to jump through hoops to do simple normal things. However, if you're collaborating with others who only have access to an earlier version of Word, it's best to leave the document in Compatibility mode so the format will not change. Save-as and renaming is a work around for now, but not a real solution.
So how can I overcome this problem? Your recently edited documents will appear. That sounds great, because reliable image positioning has been a problem for many versions. Please feel free to contact me again. As I mentioned in other posts , I use this for my small business. Microsoft should be aware of and should have fixed this most irritating problem by now.
