I’ve checked all those things. All the permissions are set to Read & Write and the file is not locked in any way.
The strange thing is that it doesn’t happen consistently but only 1 out of 2 times I open the file.
We have a similar intermittent problem here with our files on the server (located in a another building), we have yet to find a solution, but if we do I’ll let you know. One thing, this started happening to us when we switched from an «smb://» connection to an «afp://» one.
We are having similar problem; All the permissions are set to Read & Write and the file is not locked in any way.
And it doesn’t happen consistently but only 1 out of 2 times I or someone else opens the file. We are using Macs and PC to access indd on a windows server.
Was there a resolution to this?
I have a similar issue. We have three computers that are networked together to work on InDesign pages. Permissions are set properly.
Every time one particular computer opens and saves a page, it will become a “read only” when either of the other two computers open it. So we then have to save it as a copy and then delete the older version of the page. This is infuriating, and has more than once led to us losing work because the wrong version of a page was opened or saved. This has not always been the case, but began a few months ago.
I am having the same issue with my InDesign book files. Suddenly the individual chapters within my book are read-only when I open them. I am on just one freelancer computer, no networking at all. I never touched any permissions and they opened fine 10 minutes ago. Help!
