[Pro] Being edited by another application - warning?

This is strange. I went to open FW this morning and got a small flurry of warning dialogs - all saying (and similar to) -

“The document XXXXXXXX.freeway is being edited by another application, so you will not be able to save any changes. Do you want to open it anyway?”

I’m going to restart and repair permissions - but has anyone else seen this one? (Freeway 5.6.4 Pro)

I don’t have many other open programs - EyeTV, PS3 Media Server, iTunes, iCal, Stickies LibreOffice, Safari, Mail and that’s it!

Are you on Lion? Look in the Time Machine pane of the System Preferences, and un-check the option to “Lock documents [pull-down] after last edit”, in the Options sub-pane. I am not convinced that this is your issue, but it is a good idea to do anyway, especially if you have documents you work on sporadically.

Thanks Walter - yes, Lion - I don’t know if it was the permissions repair or unchecking Lock Documents - but the issue cleared up after doing both and restarting.

Regardless, unchecking Lock Documents is indeed a good idea for many projects I come back to occasionally both in Freeway and other programs as well.
