[Request] Force check out if editing
We've been punk'd a couple of times by this. someone has a file checked out and working on it and someone else just opens the same file and adds somethings - maybe fixes a thing then suddenly it becomes quite messy trying to sync everyones stuff back up and involves using Tortoise SVN in explorer
Although, this is perhaps primarily our fault, I was wondering if it would be possible to have a : "If you want to edit this, you have to check it out" kind of logic ? rather than when you come to Save it says "check out or make writeable" - which is a bit silly i think.. making it writeable will be worse in the long run and (as the scenario described above) check out will fail
You should see a pop-up notification when you modify a non-checked out file that says "Files need check-out!" and a link to click to do this. This functionality is enabled in Editor Preferences->Loading & Saving->Source Control.
We considered a 'blocking' modal dialog that prevented people from editing to be an unnecessary hitch in workflow, so we made it optional.
