I have version 2013, I just upgraded not long ago and every single time I open a file it gives me a warning dialogue box that says this file is read only or in use do you still want to open it. It is driving me nuts!!! I know I can go in and change the settings and change that, but every single time? Is there no way to "undo" something in my settings to make that permanent?
