Diptrace won't let me open a file I just saved

#1 Post by SteveW » 04 Oct 2021, 19:27

I know I know nothing, but still, this behavior from a program is just not normal. Running the latest version on Win 10 64 bit. Latest version of Diptrace. Working on a PCB. Save it. Walk away for awhile and come back 10 minutes (or 2 days later, doesn't matter) and go to Open Recent. My file name is not listed. Go to OPEN and the folder opens and right there is the last worked on file. Try and open it and I get this message attached

I see messages regarding this problem from years ago. Certainly it cannot still be happening in 4.1?

The message appears if you try to save to a file that already opened by another user or if the file was closed incorrectly. In the second case, you can release the file if you search and delete hidden file with tildas in file name in the same folder with DipTrace file.
