View Full Version : Read only

I have somehow locked my dwg into ''read only'' mode. How can I revert or unlock ? Please Help. I am desperate.

It depends on the context
If the drawing has been opened on another computer, your copy will be opened as read-only. If you are on a server run the whohas command to see who else has the drawing opened
If you have carried out work, just save the drawing elsewhere & overwrite the original when appropiate
If you have set the file itself to read-only, right-click the dwg file, under general table if the read-only toggle is checked, uncheck it

...one more possibility. If the drawing file is on a network server, then it could be locked down with file permissions (different that the read-only flag)...
