Libre OFfice locked calc. ods file. (Resolved)
« on: July 20, 2020, 10:54:04 am »
Hi, folks

Not sure if this is the right place for this so sorry if it isn't.

Somehow a number of ods files in LibreOffce calc. are locked and I can't find a way to unlock them.

If anyone can help be most grateful.

Regards.

They should unlock when you close them but maybe you had a crash or terminated the program.

Look in the same folder as your documents. Make sure in the View menu of Nemo "Show hidden files" is ticked. You should see files starting with .~lock. and then the filenames of your docs. If you delete those .~lock. files you should be able to edit the docs again.

Hi, Murraymint,

Thanks for that files are OK now. 

Don't have a clue why they came up as locked but thanks for your solution now back on track.

Regards,
