How can I deactivate the write-protection in an OpenOffice-document?

I activated document-protection for a document (Open Office on a Macbook, very recent download), and now I can't deactivate it. Though I should be the user who is allowed to read and write, I can't write on it anymore or rename the file. When looking back on the document information it displays no protection, which I could deactivate. Hum?

"The other answers are quite old and did not work for me.
Therefore, I looked for a newer answer, and found one here.

The solution is to go to

Tools > Options... > LibreOffice Writer > Compatibility,

and then to remove the tick mark from the "" Protect form"" line. For me, this is the third line from below."
