Basically, I just want to have an option where Architect can automatically flip the read only flag on files it uses / generates. I need this because we have an SCM that imports files as read only and I can't get this changed. Even if I write scripts to do this, I know some people here would still have a bad time with it.
Sorry to keep harping on this point. I realize not everyone cares about this, but it is important to us and I know we'd be able to leverage Architect much better with this in place. Any chance of seeing this in Architect 3.x?
So basically you want it to turn off the read-only bit so that it can write to the file system whenever you save?
Yes, that's exactly what I want. No prompt or error message, just silently flipping the bit and letting the save happen. And if not everyone wants it this way, it can be made a Setting, but this would help us use Architect better.
Thanks for the update - still hoping to see this one day.
I think the really awesome thing would be if you guys could lock down the API to the point where you feel comfortable making some of it public and then provide a means for developers to write plugins for Architect - as in actually extending the functionality of Architect itself.
No matter how much functionality you give us, we'll always want more!
I realize this might not be as high on the priority as some other features, but has it been considered for the 3.x line?
So I've been checking this when I got time every couple of Architect releases. I saw this morning in 18.104.22.1681 that read only files work exactly as I want. If the file is read only, there is a nice dialog box that asks if I want to overwrite the setting. Excellent! Thanks for getting to this one.
