Was it a document you received via Email?


If so, it may be in Protected View.

Often you can enable editing, assuming it is from a trusted source, by hitting f6 until you get a dialog that says something like, be careful, files from the internet can contain viruses.

Tab and there should be a button to enable editing.


Or, sometimes, you just need to go from read only to print view.

Same f6 will get you there.

Subject: Microsoft Word has gone crazy


Something weird’s happening since yesterday.

When I open a word document and arrow down, it says the line and then “forwarding is prohibited” or something like that because it’s in my mother tongue.

What am I doing wrong?
