Now that I have created my invoice form, I went into file/properties
and checked 'open as read only', so the form does not get "filled in".

Then I decided to make some improvements.  When I opened the file, of
course, it is set to read only, so I went to properties and found the
check box grayed out, so I exited LO and used Linux to set the file to
read/write for me and my group (of me).  When I opening the file, I
found it was still grayed out.  Help explained how to edit the file,
but when I went to save it, it would only save as 'save as'.

How do I change the setting so it does not go to 'read only' when I
open the file in LO?


On the main toolbar you will find an "/Edit File/" icon. Clicking that
icon allows you to edit read only documents.

You can also set/unset a file's read only status under the "/Security/"
tab of the document "/Properties/" dialog. From the main menu select the
"/File -> Properties.../" option.

You will find it helpful to read the "Getting Started" and "User" guides
