Question Unable to disable the read-only mode


Hi all,
I am running into an issue with a file I accidentally clicked on "open in read only mode" - I cannot disable it. I tried saving with another name (with advanced settings) the file is stuck and I cannot really do anything with it. Screen attached.
Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance.

Can you copy the slides and paste them into a new pptx document with paste option 'Keep Source Formatting'?

No, that was not possible, the file was completely stuck. A colleague was able to open it, "Edit Anyway" (option which I didn't have), save under a new name and now it works for myself as well.
