AOS - Document read only if Word will be closed without saved changes

Hi,

 

I am using the Alfresco Version Community - 6.0.7 (r2ba893dd-b113) with the ability to edit Office documents online. 

This is working via Alfresco and also via an external client with the correct URL if there is an interaction with the AOS service. 

If there is nothing to save or if i only open a MS Word document via the "Edit in Microsoft Office™" button and close the MS Word application without making anything the file will be read only in future. There is no lock in the Alfresco web application visible. 

 

Is there a possibility to avoid this?

 

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Upload a Word doc (docx) to Alfresco
  2. Click the uploaded doc to see the details page
  3. Open the doc via the "Edit in Microsoft Office™" button
  4. Enter new text to the doc and save (title will show something like "upload via sharepoint") ==> OK
  5. Open the doc via the "Edit in Microsoft Office™" button
  6. Close MS Word without any change
  7. Open the doc via the "Edit in Microsoft Office™" button

==> Error; the doc from now will be opened only as read only
