for some reason now when i try to edit the file it comes up as read only when i look at the properties the read only box isnt ticked, ive tried turning read only on then turning it back of again but it still keeps saying its read only. i dont know if this is a well known bug but how do i fix it?

I've had a few documents do that and they do open as read-only but can't be edited so I just use File, Save as and give it a new name such as adding the number 1 to the name, etc., then delete the original.
