Using LibreOffice Writer with Orca under Linux, I recently found that I couldn't navigate a read-only document with the usual cursor movement keys. Thus, I couldn't read it without using Ctrl-Shift-M to exit read-only mode.

The scenario was straightforward: I opened an e-mail attachment, and the file was treated as read-only.

Is there a way to keep the read-only status while allowing normal cursor movement in the editor?

There's an option to enable that:

Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Accessibility -> enable "Use text selection cursor in read-only text documents"

(You might have to restart LibreOffice for that to take effect.)
