parts modified/read only?


New member
How does an object set to read only, become modified/read only? I've never had this problem until recently. The only thing I can think of that is different is before, I manually set the objects in my workspace to read only. Now our administrator set it up so that everything checked out, is automatically set to read only. Is this a bug or something else?

I don't know all the ins and outs, but there is an issue with Intrlink and Daylight Savings Time. If you didn't check in your parts before the time change, they will show as modified.

if the file is locked by somebody and u modify it says its modified/readonly both. u have to take backup of the drawing..and then update the file in workspace windowwith commonspace ..get it unlocked..and then save the files from ur taken backup.
