#163 swf file remains open afer loading it
Author: developer honfika
Date created:
Type: bug
Visibility: Everybody
Assigned to:
Labels: GUI
State: closed Help

> What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Open any swf file. 2. Try to delete it. => The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. Maybe it is OK 3. Open another file. 4. Open first file again. I still can't delete the 2nd file. Neither the first (but it can be OK) It is strange, because i can delete the first file after 3rd step. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? Exprected: Every not currently opened file can be deleted. The loaded files can be deleted OR can't be modified. (see additional information) > What version of the product are you using? On what operating system? 1.6.3u2 > Please provide any additional information below. Attach the file you have problem with if neccessary. If you do not want to publish files YOU CAN CHANGE VISIBILITY TO PRIVATE The loaded file can be modified (e.g owerwrite it with another content), so there is no reason to keep it open. The best soltution would be: 1. close the file handle after loading it, so it can be deleted or 2. keep it "fully locked", so it can't be modified from another program Thank you.
