    just for the archives, openoffice does this, it is not zimbra's fault. however there is a button "edit document" in OOo that lets you edit read-only documents.

    Default pref.js can set this option

    Hi All,

    I realise this is a very old thread, but I have just encountered this problem with ZDesktop 2.1 in Windows, and this was the only thread that came up on a search.

    I was able to resolve it by doing the following.

    1. Ensure Z Desktop is closed (in windows, right click task-bar icon and choose exit).
    2. Find your zimbra prefs file, on a windows 7 machine it is located here:
    Code:
    C:\Users\ajackson\AppData\Local\Zimbra\Zimbra Desktop\profile\prefs.js
    3. Add the following line to the bottom of the config
    Code:
    user_pref("browser.helperApps.deleteTempFileOnExit", false);
    4. Start Zimbra & attachments should now open in read/write mode.

    Not yet sure if this is a permanent solution to the issue though.

    HI JA,

    I am using win7 64 bit and Zimbra Desktop 7.1.4 GA. My attachments are opening readonly. I am forced to save them to the Harddisk and then open them as editable. Is there any way i can open them directly editable and then save as in MS Outlook. Please help.

    thanks

    Hi vgopik,
    I'm still using this same fix with 7.x and it still works okay.

    JA.
