Project has become read only

Postby tom@grosman.org » Mon Apr 20, 2015 8:22 am

We have a recently created TW project that has some diagrams. Somehow it has become read only (i.e.all the diagrams are indicated as such). As far as I know, there were no modules created, which I understand to be the way to make something read only. All elements are unlocked.

How did this happen and how can we change the project to be writeable again?

Thanks (MD 17.0.3)

Dear Tom,

Thank you for your question. All elements in the project is read-only because as you said your project is unlocked. This means that no editing can be made until you lock it. Lock project elements to modify them. Note that elements and diagrams can only be locked by one and only one user at a time.

Way how to lock elements:
1. Select an element in the Model Browser.
2. Right-click the element.
3. On the selected item’s shortcut menu, point to Lock and then click a wanted locking command.

Way how to lock diagram content for edit:
1. Select a diagram in the Model Browser.
2. Right-click the diagram pane.
3. On the selected item’s shortcut menu, point to Lock Diagram and then click a wanted locking command. (Lock Diagram Content for Edit)

If you find further questions or concerns - feel free to contact us.
