You receive a "Sorry, this document can’t be opened for editing" error when you try to edit an Office document in Office Web Apps and the primarily the reason is UPA not synced correctly with Active Directory User groups as described here. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2908321 However, I want to bring one more aspect where editing word documents was not working in my SharePoint environment and was failing withe the same message “Sorry, this document can’t be opened for editing” and it turned out that I had disabled co-authoring on my web application which led to this behaviour. Make sure that co-authoring is enabled and you will not get this error while editing in office web apps. SPWebApplication.DisableCoauthoring = false;
In SharePoint Online at times you might encounter that you cannot add or import term sets even after being a site collection administrator. Especially in the small business plans where there is no SharePoint Admin Settings and you might be wondering how to get started with adding terms to the term store. In such cases when you navigate to Site Settings—>Term Store Management you might see something as below which does not allow you to add or import anything. Worry not the solution is simple, navigate to Site Collection Features and activate the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure Feature And head back to term store management, you should now see a new group and now you can start adding the terms.
