Hi,
if I start QOwnNotes I can see the Notes but I can’t edit them. There is no cursor and no highlight of the selected line in the edit window.
I have 2 folders, both of them local on my computer and I have write access to them. I can create new notes. I can edit the Notes in an external editor.
Is there an option to set QOwnNotes in a read only mode? Where are the Settings stored? Can I reset all settings?
I use
QOwnNotes - version 18.04.4 - AppVeyor - build 3573
Windows 10 pro Version 1709 (Build 16299.371)

Thank you very much! I haven’t seen the "Disallow all note editing" Option.
Maybe I hit the shortcut Alt+Shift+E.
Sorry I already thought it was such a simple problem.

Can I reset all settings?
yes, in the settings

There it is, under Note Settings General on the right site "Clear app data and exit"
Sorry again and thank You for your kind response!

18.04.5

  • if note editing was disabled now a notification dialog will open if you start
    typing in the note edit
    • in addition a button with the text Read-only will be viewed in the
      status bar if note editing is disabled
    • you can click this button to enable note editing again
