Read-only mode Dialog Box
« on: June 24, 2019, 08:55:54 PM »
Whenever you are working on the software and eventually crash on you and you need to open it again....

How do you solve this ?  Just curious .

To me it sounds like there is a file saved as a lock file ?

Can you post how you solved it? I often have a 'read-only' lock on files I don't have open elsewhere and am unsure of how to remove it.

I can't remember what I did. But the lock means that whenever you had your Metashape has not left from the computer and left it running if you exit the software...

I will try and figure it out ok

When you have a crash or program exits abruptly the lock file is not removed from project. To re open your project in regular mode, just delete this file which resides in your <projectname>.files  folder..
