I've read many questions and answers regarding unprotection of table cells,
however none of the replies I have seen worked in my case.

When I try to edit a table cell text, I get the famous popup saying "Readonly
content cannot be changed. No modifications will be accepted". However, I can
edit the content of some of the other cells in the same table.

I do have read-write permission on the filesystem level. As mentioned, I can
edit some other parts of the document.

There is no "unprotect" option in the cell submenu on the right-click context
menu in the cell. It only says "<No selection possible>" in greyed out text.

Format -> Sections is greyed out, so I have no access to any "security" settings

The file properties shows that the document has no password protection. Nothing
is activated on the Security tab there.

One reply mentioned something about "Design Mode", but I could not edit the text
after activating that either.

I'm using Libreoffice 3.4.5 OOO340m1 (Build:502) on Debian Sid Linux.

Any ideas? This is often a problem for me when filling out downloadable forms
with Libreoffice. Does it have some sort of "Make everything editable" option?
That would have saved me many hours...

Best regards,
Torquil Sørensen

Hi, me!

Abiword was able to edit the "read-only" parts of the document, so I'm happy now :-)

I still welcome suggestions here on how to achieve this in Libreoffice Writer.

Best regards
