I've been suddenly getting a weird dialogue saying I have to explicitly choose to edit a doc I just opened, because I "haven't opened it lately" or something like that. Is this a Lion feature, or a NeoOffice/OOo feature? Can I turn it off? It's tiring Smile.

I think that is part of Lion's Versions feature. Supposedly documents that haven't been opened recently (think i read somewhere the default is two weeks) are locked to prevent accidental editing.

This is definitely a new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion feature and it is part of Lion's new Versions.

From what I have found, Apple's new Lion code will warn you if you are editing a document that was last saved "a long time ago". I am not sure what Lion's cutoff for "a long time ago" is, but I my guess is that the intent of these warning dialogs is to help users avoid accidently overwriting documents that they did not intend to change.

Interestingly, getting NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code to allow display of the warning dialogs without hanging was one of the more difficult parts of implementing the Versions feature in NeoOffice. The problem is that those warning dialogs are displayed at unknown points in time from within Apple's code so I had to modify the NeoOffice code to be ready for a native warning dialog to appear at any moment.

"The auto-lock time is configurable in the "Options…" screen of the Time Machine preference pane (of all places), with values from one day to one year. The default is two weeks."

Daniel,

Thanks for posting that link. Here is a screen snapshot that sets this new "lock document" preference from the article:

Thanks for that Smile. I'm getting tired of Lion's "new features"... it keeps rearranging my desktop icons, dammit.
