Documents opening in Preview mode, Protected View or Reading View

Even though you have checked out your document in Evolve you still can't edit it when opened.

This could be related to a Microsoft Word setting the opens your document in Preview mode, Protected View or Reading View.

Turn off preview mode:

In Microsoft Word:

1.Go to File->Options->General

2. Under 'Start up option' - untick 'Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view"


If Documents are still opened in a read only mode, you may also need to change the Protected Mode settings:

1. Go to File->Options->Trust Centre->Trust Centre settings->Protected View.

There are 3 options here that open documents in preview/protected mode.
