My project is opening as read only.
Hi I just realised that all my project windows when i open are "Read Only"
I bet this is the problem. How can i be on the normal project where i can
make changes does this mean the equipment supplier might have restricted the manupulation of the project by making it read only?
Or is it that i am on only "view mode" hence not permited to change any thing?
1. Check your user has enough user rights to edit the programming, Your user should have atleast "Application Engineers Role" assigned to user groups. to Check user role go to user structure in the Plant explorer workplace. Select the User group where you findr your username under various user groups. Check in the User role Tab on the right hand Pane on the bottom. You should have "Application Engineers Role" to do any modifications.
2. You need to reserve the Object by selecting the object, right click on the object and select Reserve option in the context menu.
3. There might be configuration where-in the access will be restricted to certain user groups. Please check.
