Macro Toolworks 8.5.0 - Lock for Editing error

Post by webbar » Tue Jun 05, 2018 3:02 pm

I've noticed that when I am working with a password protected .4tw file, I remove the password protection, do the work, then put the password back on and close the file. When I open a new file, my Toolworks program is stuck in "Lock for Editing", and I have to exit out of Toolworks completely and reopen to be able to edit files again.

We have found locking the FOLDERS instead of the entire MACRO FILE resolves this issue.

To do this, RIGHT CLICK on the folder
Go to Properties
Click Password
Enter the credentials you would like to use and select the appropriate options, and click Password Protect
