Hi

in the past I often got contacted by the translation company that their translaters are not able to save the file. They got the message it is readonly.

I would like to see that Globalizer if it detects that error that it provides an option to remove it before it saves to that file.

Would improve user experience a lot.

Kind regards
Sven

I understand why you might want this - but I'm not sure whether just removing the read-only flag and overwriting the file would be "best practice". It would mean that you may accidently overwrite files that you thought were protected. I don't think that Microsoft Word does that (I think it it also reports an error) when you try to save to a readonly file.

What if you press save, globalizer detects that it is readonly and ask if it should remove the flag to save correctly? So it is up to the user.

I what this mainly for users that have no idea how to remove such a flag manually. The last weeks have shown me that translators are often not very confident with their computers Wink

You are right such a simple way to remove it would prevent that I ask myself why it is readonly and look for it.
