Locking and Unlocking Files and Folders
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.
To lock a file:
- Select the file you want to lock in the Project Tool Window or open it in the editor.
- From the main menu, select VCS | Subversion | Lock from the main menu, or Subversion | Lock from the context menu of the selection.
- Enter a lock comment in the Lock File dialog that opens.
