Hello everyone, I hope you are all well? I would like to know, is there any way to protect my .pln files with a password or something similar? I only know how to put a password on the pdf generated by Archicad. thanks for all.

You can install bimcloud basic in your local computer and put your project files in it as teamwork files. Then you have full control on how other users can access your project files by setting the bimcloud user rights. It will be much better than setting a password to the pln files (if you could )

There isn't but there is a wish for some form of protection, especially to template files.

Really, it would be really nice. it already occurred to me exactly to lend my computer to someone and the person took my personal and company template
