I have bought a new android phone and can not edit my files without it being "Conflict" and saved as a copy.
When I open the file for editing, it says that it is read-only.
On my computer and tablet it works without problems but not on my new phone. I see that the phone has a newer update installed so maybe it is due to that?
Its only me who have access to the files, I am the administrator and I have never locked any file.
How do I solve the problem?
I apologize if my English is bad but I hope it can be understood. I use Google Translate 🙂
It is Excel Documents (xlsx).
It is fine to open and read, but when I have to edit, the problem arises.
The document opens in Office on the phone.
When I have edited the document and want to close it, it wants to save and asks if I want to save in OneDrive Private, Dropbox, My Device, Add a location or browse. If I then select Dropbox, I see all my files and I get to put a name on the file to be saved. If I save, it says that the file already exists (of course) and asks if I want to replace it.
If I replace it, it will be a copy or I may put a new name.
Previously on my old phone, and still on the computer and tablet, I can close the dokument and the change is saved automatically without it being saved as a new document.
If I open the document on my computer, I can edit and save as usual, even if the document is also open on the phone. Then a text appears on the phone stating that the document has been changed and that I can update.
As it should be.
The same document can be open on the computer and the tablet at the same time and can be changed without any problems. It is only from the phone editing gives problems.
The text that previously came up that it was just read-only has disappeared by itself and will not come lower when I open a document to edit it.
As I wrote earlier, I am the only user and administrator.
When I compare the settings on my phone and tablet, everything looks the same, except that Dropbox app version on the tablet is 214.2.6 and on the phone 220.2.4 (on the computer it is v114.4.426)
