Re: Document locked by default?

Hi relindwto6,

welcome to the Tracker forums!

We do not place a lock on files unless you explicitly add security. Where does the file come from?

If you check the document Properties, (CTRL+D) does it show any restrictions?

Hi Rut,

Hi

I agree it is a needed feature. We hadn't planned for this until after the initial release of V9, the main thrust of which is around accessibility compliance.
