But when I did this just now on a file, I got a box saying that this file cannot be unlocked, but I can duplicate it and edit that.  If I do so, will that automatically become a replacement for the old one?---this file is one of many in a book project, all relating to a different project root.  Or is there a way to unlock even when I get that error message?

Hmmm... I haven't gotten that when opening old files; have always seen the Unlock choice. I'd do a Get Info… on those files and see if you have them locked there and if the ownership and permissions are set correctly for those files.

Good Luck,
