'this modification is not allowed because the selection is locked' using Word 2010 and skydrive pro

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have an active Office 2010 as part of a P3 Office 365 subscription.

    I have just activated Sharepoint to be able to use Skydrive Pro.

    I have downloaded the Sync App and successfully sync'd files between the two.

    I can create a Word 10 document in the local Skydrive Pro folder but cannot edit it.

    I can create and edit a Web App Word document, it syncs down to local where I can open it local but cannot edit it.

    When I try to edit either document Word shows the message 'this modification is not allowed because the selection is locked'

    The Office 2010 is fully licensed.

    I can only think it is because I am using Office 2010 with Sharepoint 2013? Can any one suggest anything else?

  • can you create word document locally using office client?

    also is their any grouping on the text....you can check this by enabling the developer tab and click on the selection and ungroup it if any.

    reboot the machine or try to repair the office 2010.

  • Hi thanks for looking at this issue.

    Can I create a local file, yes.  Its only when it's in the Skydrive Pro folder I cannot edit it.

    Is there any grouping etc, no.  I am creating a brand new document with the words test. Which I cannot edit once it is saved.

    Thanks
