I would like to ask how to make the schematic design a read-only file. All previously created schematic designs will be uploaded in the server. These designs can be used by other design engineers for their projects. Engineers can reuse the existing designs (blocks) but are not allowed to modify or change the circuit of the existing design.
How should this be done?
Thanks in advance!
I'm also curious what the best practice is for this. Did you ever figure it out? Is it a matter of simply making the files "read only" on the file system? Of is there another type of locking mechanism built into the tools?
In reply to chwilso3:
Still no idea on this. If ever you have known the best practice for this, please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
