I just discovered - after updating a lot of our users - that apparently
this is broken in the first 5.x release. There simply is no 'Cell'
context menu option, and nothing in any of the Menus to allow me to
unprotect the cell...

Can anyone else confirm this?

Yes. (

There's a main menu option Table|Protect Cells, but apparently no inverse.

However, it seems you can R-click on the table in the navigator and
unprotect the entire table. Clumsy.

Clumsy is an understatement - and on top of that it doesn't even work.

Unprotect is not an option, only Protect, so I tried Protecting the
entire Table, then Unprotecting it, but the individual protected cell(s)
remain protected...

But I think you may have misread my note.

If you R-click the table *in the navigator* (use F5) there's a Table|Unprotect option. It only appears though if the table does have a protected cell. At least here.... and I have just checked it.

So to recap:
pick a cell and use main menu Table | Protect Cells
then to do a gross undo,
F5 to show the Navigator if necessary, R-click on the table's name and select Table | Unprotect.

As I said, clumsy.
