Not sure if this is a bug or a limitation of the Secure Edition. Using the NeoO Secure Edition I have not been able to save files to a networked Windows computer.

Using the NO3.3 I have always been able to save a file to my secretary's computer.

The process I used is with a Writer Document
File: Save As
in the dialogue box select on the networked computer and then the shared folder on the networked computer
enter the file name and select save.

I then get 2 error messages
Error saving the document XXX*** draft:
/Volumes/FOLDERNAME/filename draft.odt does not exist

then:
Error saving the document XXX*** draft:
General Error.
General input/output error.

As I said this procedure works for the same document from the regular version.

Is "filename draft.odt" the name of the file that you put in the Save As dialog? Or did you only put "filename" or "filename.odt"?

In other words, I am trying to determine if NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code is saving temporary files. When running in Apple's Sandbox, the Save As dialog only gives read and write access to the filename that you put in the dialog and so if the OpenOffice.org code is writing to a different filename in the same folder, the App Sandbox will deny writing of that different filename.

One other request: can you right-click or Control-click on the remote volume that saving to fails. In the popup menu that appears, select the Get Info menu item. Can you take a screen snapshot of the window that will appear by pressing the Command-Shfit-4 keys and attach the .png file that that creates on your Desktop? I am most interested in the "Format" field in that window.

Ignore my last post as I can reproduce this when using File :: Save As to save a new .odt file to a folder on a remote volume. What I know so far is that NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code is trying to get a list of the files in the folder that you are saving the new file to.

I will see if I can figure out a way to disable that OpenOffice.org code without breaking any of OpenOffice.org's file saving code.

Note to myself: to reproduce this bug, I had to save to the topmost folder in a mounted volume. Saving to a subfolder of the topmost folder was not affected by this bug.

To answer your questions the word 'draft' was part of the file name I created and just forgot to delete when I transcribed the error messages.

You already responded to yourself while I was taking the screen shot but the Get Info on the remote volume did not list the Format instead I got a spinning wheel under More Info but I can tell you that it is NTFS

Good luck finding a fix.

I think that I have fixed this bug in the following test patch.

Can you install the test patch and tell us if the bug is fixed for you?:

Patrick,
The patch seems to have fixed it. I have been able to save to and open from the other computer.

Thank you!

Is there a special password to log in to the download page?
My normal login and password do not seem to be working.

FYI. The fix for this bug is in NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2. To download NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2, use the download link in this NeoWiki article.

Please note that the NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2 installer should find and update your existing NeoOffice 2013 Beta installation. If you don't have NeoOffice 2013 Beta already installed, it will install in /Applications/NeoOffice.app and overwrite any regular NeoOffice installation there if you have not renamed it. So, if you have NeoOffice 3.3 installed, we recommend that you rename it before installing NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2.

NeoOffice Secure Edition testers: NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2 is incompatible with NeoOffice Secure Edition so if you have one of the NeoOffice Secure Edition versions installed, we recommend that you delete your NeoOffice Secure Edition user preference files by executing the following command in a Terminal window before installing NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2:

Quote:
rm -Rf ~/Library/Containers/org.neooffice.NeoOfficeSecureEdition/Data/Library/Preferences/NeoOfficeSecureEdition


Edit by pluby: added special steps for NeoOffice Secure Edition testers.
