    At least update online user experience when document is protected by File -> Protect document -> Restrict editing -> Tracked changes. When user got editing link to document it can be opened in browser. The browser displays document in read-only mode. There is option "Edit in Browser" but option "Edit in Word" is missing.

    If one click "Edit in Browser" the browser displays message "Sorry, Word Online can't open this document for editing (...), please open it in Microsoft Word." ( https://imgur.com/a/2p9lo5y ). At this moment if one clicks "Edit in Word" button nothing happens... Word isn't launching and the browser displays empty document. Is that expected behavior?
