Unlocking Document Files

yuuvis® RAD client 10.x »

Document files can be locked while the file content is being processed (see Locking Document Files). If you edited a document file using yuuvis® RAD agent and locked it yourself, you can also remove the document lock yourself.

Locked document files are indicated in yuuvis® RAD client by icons in the header of the object area. Documents shown with a yellow Locked icon Lock icon have been locked by you.

Other Ways to Unlock Document Files

If you change the metadata for a document file that you locked yourself, the lock is removed automatically!

  • When using the Check in or Discard action in yuuvis® RAD agent, the lock is removed from the document file.

  • If you have a locked document and select Save and check in or File as new in yuuvis® RAD Office Add-In, the lock is also removed.

  • The lock is also removed when you delete the document file in yuuvis® RAD client.

Locked by Other Users

Document files locked by other yuuvis® RAD users are indicated by a red Locked icon Lock icon. You cannot remove this lock. Mouse over the Locked icon Lock icon in yuuvis® RAD client to see which user has currently locked the document. If necessary, contact the user in question or an administrator and ask them to unlock the document.
