    Question about sharing FLAs between multiple users

    I work as part of a flash development team and occasionally two or more of us need to work on the same fla at the same time. Until now that hasn't been a problem since an error would occur if you tried to open a file that was already open by someone else. However, we recently upgraded to FlashMX (finally) and noticed that any number of people can have the doc opened at the same time, just the original opener can save. This really messes up our pseudo check-out system and could ruin someones work, if they've been working for a half hour only to find they cannot save. Does anyone know if there's some kind of file locking feature in flashMX or do we have to look into using an external system?

    Thanks for reading.

    Have you considered working with shared libraries ?

    Shared libraries don't help in this case. We do use them. This is a problem of 4 or more people, working on different parts of dozens of flash files, who occasionally cross paths. With flash 5 we would know a file was opened and come back to it later. Now we don't know until we try to save.
