Few of the cells I opened in read mode and when drawn a ruler are thought to be checked out through design sync. But actually I did not make any changes to the layout cell. Even after I open up the cell and clear rulers(I made the ruler not selectable during the setup), it keeps me giving that warning when ever I close the data or try to do a stream out. Is this a bug?
I use IC6.1.5. I would appreciate any help on this issue.
Rulers as objects in the database are new in IC614 (I think that's when they appeared). Before that they were just display graphics and so were not savable in the database.
Being able to edit readonly cellViews in memory (as opposed to having to use "scratch" mode) is a change as a result of the move to OpenAccess.
So it's a combination of the two things which explains why you didn't see this in IC5, but do in IC6 (specifically IC614 onwards)
