QUIP - Toggle view mode for users with editor rights


For Quip documents/sheets - If a user has VIEW ONLY, they see a view of the document that differs from the view of user with EDIT access.  In many situations a document is finalized, but users with Edit access still can only see it in edit mode. I propose that users with Edit access to documents/sheets should be able to toggle their view to VIEW ONLY so they don't accidentally make changes to a document that they don't intend to make.

Also this would be useful if an editor is presenting their screen for a training session etc. where the audience only has VIEW access. This way what the presenter is showing would match what the audience is seeing on their own screens, and the presenter can click around and highlight things on the document without the edit features popping on to the screen or accidentally moving paragraphs or editing the document.
