  • disable edit&copy lines if file is read only

    I know it warns when saving, but if it could warn or optionally disable when editing and copying lines when the file is read only it would be helpful

    Hello,

    We have an option under the Session menu -> Session Settings -> Specs tab. You can set either side to "Disable Editing." You can also set this in the Folder Compare to stop all child sessions (double clicked files) from having editing available.

      fpdave is asking for a tweak that would set the "Disable Editing" checkboxes automatically in a text compare session only for files that are read-only. Personally I think this is a reasonable request.

        Yes, I agree that the suggestion has merit. We'll consider it for a future release.

          Thanks for the clarification, Michael. I've documented it in our wishlist entry. We do not currently support this behavior, but as a workaround to protect his files he can hopefully use the Folder Compare session setting.
