Lock documents and/or attributes.

Post by pjmiller » Tue Nov 19, 2013 10:22 pm

It would be nice if there were an option to lock a document so that it cannot be edited or deleted without first unlocking it.

As a similar idea to this it would be nice to be able to lock an attribute for all documents in a topic so that it may not be accidentally changed. I have a topic full of sequentially numbered documents, I have to be careful if clicking in the tree area to select one, if I happen to click on the number then scrolling with the mouse wheel to re-position the tree will alter the serial number of the document instead. It would be nice to be able to lock the attribute so that it cannot be accidentally changed.

In order to deliberately change that attribute it would have to be unlocked first.

Although this is an old thread, I would like to revive it as I would also like to see this feature.

I frequently have documents which I consider "finished" and want them to remain in an explicitly locked, unmodifiable, state. Perhaps this could be indicated with a small lock icon in the status bar or something similar which could be clicked on and off.

Locking documents is very likely to be available in MyInfo 7.

As for locking attributes: this may have its merit, I will think about it too.

Thanks Petko, appreciate your consideration on this feature. I'm excited to have a look at version 7 when it arrives.
