Short tip: “open office document is only available for reading”

Here’s a handy tip for everyone who faces the following

problem

An OpenOffice document, opened from a a mail / archive, can’t be edited with the information “Document is only opened for reading”.

Ein, aus einer Mail / einem Archiv, in OpenOffice geöffnetes Dokument läßt sich nicht bearbeiten mit dem Hinweis “Dokument ist nur zum Lesen geöffnet”

The solution

The toolbar up-right contains a button named Edit file – fifth of left, if nothing was changed -. This function removes the write protection and the file could now be edited.
Eventually you must commit this change.
