I don't think this is a bug. I think it's working exactly as designed.
Notetab recognizes if the file is a Unicode text file or UTF-8 Web page
and makes it Read-Only, within NoteTab, upon loading.
This doesn't necessarily mean the disk file is Read-Only also.
I run into this now and then but until now it wasn't such a problem that it
required writing a clip.
I have written a clip now that should check all open files and those that
are Unicode text files or UTF-8 Web pages should change status to allow
editing. I haven't a very good way of testing this clip because I seldom
run into a Unicode or UTF-8 Web page.
I realize this is not the clips list but I'll insert the clip and CC this
message to the clips list, which you can put into a clipbar, and the next
time you have several files loaded you can run the clip on the open files.
As I said, I can't reliably test it but, it should work.
