Open a document so a read-only user can make changes in Word
Posted on 2012-12-20
I have a SharePoint 2010 Foundation server set up with a document library full of standard forms for our business. When a user that has read-only access to the library opens a document it appears in Word as a read-only document.
Is there any way a change can be made to allow the documents to open in an editable state? Permissions should already block the users from saving the documents back to the library.
The end goal is to allow our users to access things like cover pages for faxes, fill them out, print them, even save them to their hard drive if they want but block users from saving the documents back to the library.
