The title says it all: I opened an Office365 site on Sharepoint Designer 2013 and then tried to edit some .aspx pages. When trying to save, I get "Access Denied" error.

If I try to edit and save an .html page, I get no errors. If I try and rename the .html page to .aspx I get acces denied. So it seemds like editing and saving aspx pages is disabled somewhere.

I have made sure that: I am a site administrator and Run Custom Web Scripts was enabled last week from the Office 365 admin site

there is no support to edit pages via SPD anymore, not for Online version

enter image description here

  • How about making Office365 show html pages instead of downloading them? Is there a way to do that in the new versions?
