    Default Edit no longer works Version 4.0.2 (build 19186)

    It was working before the update, now I can't edit stuff under version control. Can anyone else reproduce this?

    Could we get a bit more info on your OSX version, the VCS you are using and it's version?

    Have you had a chance to reboot to double check if your system or our app is in a bad state?

    Does BC4 display "Editing Disabled" in the lower status bar of the Text Compare? Or are you in a Text Merge session type?

    Hi,
    Thanx for the reply. I'm using Yosemite 10.10.1. I did try rebooting. I'm using Git and Sourcetree as the Gui. It is showing "editing disabled". I never had any issues before the latest update editing source files. It's an objective c file. Thoughts?

    We would need the specific setup information at this point. Editing Disabled would indicate that a parameter is configured to mark it (purposefully) as read-only.

    In fact, if you followed the directions here:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/suppo...osx#sourcetree
    The -ro tag is supposed to make the diff read-only. Removing this tag may be dangerous, if you are then able to edit a file SourceTree does not intend to let you edit. You could alter the tag to be -ro1 or -ro2 to only prevent editing on a specific side.

    Hi,
    Ok. I'll have a look at this when I get a chance. Thanx.

    Hi,
    Removing -ro lets you edit the file. Just wondering why you think this might be dangerous to edit files in Beyond Compare.

    In most cases, it is a file under Source Control that is not meant to be edited directly without checking in/out. It may be a temp file that is used only for display/diffing. It depends a bit on the Source Control software, but if the configuration recommends -ro1 or -ro2 that side should probably be read-only.

    I notice our instructions have -ro rather than a specific side for Source Tree. This may be overkill to have both sides read-only, as the local side (your current local file) could probably allow editing. Many of our Source Control instructions are customer submitted. If you have any feedback or updates, it would be appreciated.
