    sldprt or slddrw open in read-only when checked-out in EPDM.

      Scenario:

      1. check out “PART A” and the next higher ASSEMBLY “ASSEM B” through EPDM explorer
      2. Open “ASSEM B” from EPDM explorer  à Assembly file is not Read-Only in SWX
      3. Open “PART A” from EPDM explorer  à Part file is Read-Only in SWX even though I checked-out in EPDM.
      4. Close “PART A” & “ASSEM B
      5. Open “PART A” from EPDM explorer  à Part file is not Read-Only in SWX

       

      Conclusions:

      If we first open an assembly any parts contained in that assembly are opened as read-only in SWX, even if they are check-out in EPDM.

      Same thing happens if we open a part from the assembly, or from a SWX drawing.

       

      Why is this happening?

      How do we fix this?
