  • Is there a way to force opening file/folder as read-only?

    Is there a way to force BC3 to open all folders and files as read-only? Our project uses BC3 for code reviews, but we don't want to have the files changed accidentally during the review.

    I know a workaround would be to copy the files to another folder and make them read-only there, but I was hoping there was a session setting I could use instead.

    -Thanks, LloydM999

    If you're launching a comparison from the command line, use the /readonly or /ro command line switch to force a comparison to be read-only. Command Line Reference

    You can also disable editing for saved sessions. In the Home view that is displayed when you first launch BC, select a saved session. In the Specs tab, check "Disable editing" for the left and right folders.
