Studio 2014 and Office 365 appear to have a conflict over the file Normal.dotm. Every time I open Studio I get the Dialog stating that the file is read-only. Changing that status of the file does not help. When I shut down the computer, this file also prevents that process; I have to manually give consent to close it.
After every entry in TermBase I hear a message from Windows and in the background a Dialog opens with the message that Normal.dotm is read-only; sometimes these Dialogs form a stack of 20 or more instances that I have to close individually.

Any thoughts?
