Hi I am looking for advice

EPDM 2013

SW 2013


We have a model in EPDM it is in an issued state. Having opened the model read only in SolidWorks we would like to change the value of a distance mate to check civil tolerance, every time we go to edit the mate a warning box pops up saying that the part is open read only and that we need right access to complete the action?

Is it that mates need to have wright access to a file to resolve or is EPDM blocking this thinking that we wish to make changes to the document (permanent)?

If you can throw more light on to this problem that would be a help.
