Lock and unlock files and folders

Open the Marketplace tab, find the Subversion plugin, and click Install (restart the IDE if prompted).
Though Subversion integration allows 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.
Lock a file
Unlock a file
Select the file you want to unlock, or open it in the editor.
