StyledEdit can't edit existing files

Description

StyledEdit under 49058 (GCC2 hybrid x86) cannot edit existing text files. Creating a new text file works fine but when I open an existing one the cursor disappears and the only operation that works in the text editing area of the window is highlighting (and copying to the buffer) text. You can't even delete selections.

Does the status bar at the bottom say "Read-only"? Then I guess you opened the file from a red-only mounted partition.
Once you've saved the file somewhere writable, you can "unlock" the file. I'm not sure yet, but I think I'd rather see the file editable from the start wit the "Save" menu disabled, forcing you to "Save as...". Once that's done, the "Read-only" status should disappear automaticlly without the user having to explicitly "unlock" it.

While I could test it only under Virtualbox at the moment (49058 (GCC2 hybrid), but I can open and save existing files, created with StyleEdit previously.

Humdinger:

Yes I think you're right. It looks like I was trying to edit files on a RO partition but never noticed the "Read-only" status. I think we can safely close this one now.
