    idlk files allowing multi-user overwriting...

    BSAphex

      I've always relied on InDesign's locking feature (the .idlk files) to protect our team from opening the same file at once from the server.

      Since migrating to a new server the the .idlk files seems to have stopped working. The .idlk files are still visible, but it doesn't stop multiple users from having the same file open and saving changes.

      Its obviously a problem considering that people can lose work easily if more than one person has a single file open for editing.

       

      I've seen some people mention that it could be a network permissions issue, but nobody seems to have had the same exact problem or workflow.

      Any suggestions for a fix would be greatly appreciate.

       

      Thanks much!
