Locking and Unlocking Files and Folders

Though Subversion integration enables you to successfully modify and merge files, changed by different team members, sometimes it makes sense to lock files (for example, images) to avoid overwriting changes.

To lock a file

  1. Select the desired file or open it in the editor.
  2. Choose VCS | Subversion | Lock on the main menu or Subversion | Lock on the context menu of the selection.
  3. In the Lock File dialog box that opens specify the lock name.

To remove lock from a file

  1. Select the desired file or open it in the editor.
  2. Choose VCS | Subversion | Unlock on the main menu or Subversion | Unlock on the context menu of the selection.
