       When I click on this URL, a HTML document appears based from LO -
            with only 1 line.

       I can delete, add, ... to this line.

       Hopefully someone else will understand your question and will come
to your aid -
           as for me, your question is beyond me.

       BTW - attachments are not allowed on this list  ;-)

I'm having trouble with LibreOffice 3.6.  A file I was given contains
regions that are readonly, and I can't figure out how to unprotect them
in order to edit them.

The usual advice in the archives is to use the Format -> Sections menu
option.  That doesn't work here; the Sections line in the Format menu
is grayed out.  Other advice is to save the file in .odt format and
then open the result.  That doesn't work either.

Attached to this email is a very short document (in .odt format)
exhibiting the problem.  It's just one line of text saying:

      Normal (9) Normal again.

The "(9)" region shows up in gray and can't be edited.  Can anybody

Evidently this mailing list doesn't like attachments.  I have stored
the demo document at:
