document locked? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm working very very rarely woth Omnigraffle, so this question may be really not worth asking, but I can't find another way to solve my problem :-)
I made some document with omnigraffle half a year ago, and want to change a few things now, but it says [read only] and I can't change a thing - please, can anybody tell me why, and how to get over it!
Sounds like OmniGraffle isn't licensed - you can check by bringing up the Licenses panel via the OmniGraffle application menu.

If you have lost your license and you bought it from our online store you can get it sent to you again by going to our online store at and clicking on the "Lost Licenses" link at the bottom of the page. Enter the email address you used when you purchased OmniGraffle (or to the address we have on file, if you have had us update your email address in our records since you made your purchase), and it will look up and send your license(s) to that email address.
Well thats actually not the problem - the license is ok. I am also abled to make a new document, to work with it, to save it, to re-open, and to change things again... it's only this one document, that says [read only]...
If you have OmniGraffle Professional you can export this document and turn off the read-only flag and get a working file.

If you don't have Pro can open up the Graffle file in question using a text editor (OmniGraffle documents are XML), perform a search for the string, "ReadOnly" (minus the quotes) and change the key value from "YES" to "NO" in each case (again, minus the quotes) and save.

Hope that helps,
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
