Highlighting and rtf (rtfd)

Some rtf (rtfd) files in my database are editable (highlighting, deleting words, formatting etc.), others are not. This is very nasty because I prefer rtf or rtfd because I can highlight relevant passages.

All of the files are not imported but synchronised. None of the files is locked and to all of these files I have the permission to read and write.

Any suggestions or ideas out there?

As noted in the documentation, those rich text files that result from Indexing an external file are not editable. But the Launch Path command allows one to exit the external file.

Rich text files resulting from Import of external rich text files are editable, but remember there’s no synchronization from the database to the external file.

Of course, rich text files that are created in the database are fully editable.
