Unlocking for editing

1. Document file 'SEACOAST.ods' is locked for editing by:

Open document read-only or open a copy for editing

I open in "Open Copy".  I do editing and then try to save the edited
version.

for whatever reason the lock file for that spreadsheet was never
removed. using the file manager on your system navigate to the directory
where the file is stored and look for a file with  .~lock and the name
of the file you are trying to edit and delete it. Your spreadsheet
should then open properly.
