There are a couple of ways to remove the read only attribute.
For those that are most comfortable dealing with the Explorer interface:
Move to the file,
right click on it,
choose properties and whack enter,
then remove the check from the read only box.
For those who like DOS:
Open a DOS box,
then type-
attribute [file name] -r
where [file name] is the file name or full path (depending on where you are) to the file in question.

Hello, I downloaded Lessi's Book "Celebrate". I did so because I am wanting to validate in word rather than in Openbook, and I thought this short file would be a way to get started. however, this is a read-only file and I don't find any option to change from read-only to allow me to edit and save the changed file.

If someone could tell me how to change a .rft file from read-only to edit, I would appreciate it.

Otherwise, I'll just release the book in the morning.

I have been validating books in openbook, but frankly after having to reject three books in that format I would like to validate .rft files. I understand that I should be able to edit .rft files with Openbook, but attempting that hasn't worked so well for me either. Maybe I should stick to simply submitting books.
