View Full Version : Object is Read Only

10-14-2004, 06:27 AM
I recently opened a project after not working on it for a while and tried to make some changes to the geometry. However, I got an error about it being a read-only object, and I couldn't make any adjustments.

How did this happen, and how can I set it back so that I can keep working on it?

If using a PC you can use the properties panel and set it to be 'read only' 'hidden' , etc. The only reason I can thnk of being read only is if it was copied from a CD. The CD files are read only and if copied directly from a CD the 'read only' attricute would be set. I usually copy folders from a CD and then select the folder and set it's attribute to not read only for folder and all subfolders and files.

It might be a simple case of just changing the file attributes. Right click on your file and goto properties. Make sure Read Only option is unchecked. If you ever burned this model to a cd or made a bunch of files read only it could have taken on this attribute. hope this helps.
