Problems with text editor in transaction SMARTFORMS


Hi all,

We have a problem with the text editor in transaction SMARTFORMS.

In change mode, when I click on the "General attributes" tab for a text element (to open the text editor), the following message is displayed (the text has been translated from NO, which is the system language):

SAPscriptWord2007.dotm is locked for editing by anoter user. 

Do you want to:
- Open a read-only copy?
- Create a local copy and merge the changes later?
- Receive a message when the original is available again?

The message is displayed in a standard Windows dialog box.

There are no other concurrent users (as the message implies).

This message appears every time I try to open a text element in the text editor. To deal with it I usually click on the "Open a read-only copy" option. When I do so, the text element is displayed in the editor, and I can modify it as I wish.

I.e. the message doesn't cause any problems, but it is very annoying and time consuming as it appears every time I try to edit a text element...

Does anyone know what causes this...? All helpful answers will be rewarded!
