Fix Version/s: 4.2.7
Component/s: Document Library
MS Office 2010, FF 19.0
When uploading a new version there is no restriction for the file format. As a result, new version of the file fails to open e.g. in MS Office.
1. Open document library and upload .docx;
2. Click "Upload New version" -> files with all extensions are available to be open;
3. Choose .doc file and click "Open" -> New version is uploaded, preview is changed;
4. Now try to open the file through 'Edit in MS Office'.
Exp. result: the document should be open for editing;
Act.result: 'Word cannot open the file because the file format does not match the file extension'.
Note: the issue is not reproduced for Alfresco Enterprise 4.1.3, because it puts a restriction on a file format to be chosen (e.g. only docx files are availabe to be open when uploading new version for docx).
The issue was found during exploratory testing.
