Read Only

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi everybody
I've got a strange problem with ArchiCAD 20. Shortly after I start working with a file, all of a sudden in the upper bar it appears the indication that the file is read only (name file [Read-only]). Do you now how to solve this issue?
Thanks!

Has somebody else opened the same file and taken "Exclusive Access"? - which will change you to read only.
Or are you saving the file directly to a file sharing folder - Dropbox, iCloud, Onedrive or similar?

Don't work directly with files stored in a cloud drive as it can cause problems as they start to sync.

Either suspend the cloud drive updates while you work on them or save to your local hard drive and then copy the files to the cloud drive when you want them to update.
