Exclamation Someone else is working on your document, please try again later

Specifically, Windows says that Colonel Smoothie is working on the document, so I can't save it. Hey that's me, wtf man. What's going on?

Sometimes a bit gets stuck. Happens to me at least once a month. I save my document with a slightly different name, and usually I can copy the new one over the old one after a day or two.

Assuming this is a Windows machine, if so, there is usually a temp file created when it is opened that you should be able to delete. You should be able to see it in the same directory.

this happens to me often. you usually get an option to be notified when it's available, and if selected you can open and make changes until windows catches up with you
