I have started storing .dxf/.dwg files onto a cloud based drive; multiple users need access to documents.
Majority of the documents (.pdf/.xls/.csv) etc are 'locked' for editing once the first user has opened the file - which is how it should be - however, with regard to .dxf/.dwg formats, 2 people can open and edit the original file at the same time........whoever saves it last overwrites the earlier version!!

Does anyone know if I can change the progecad directory somehow to lock a file once opened by a user.......2 concurrent files are not what we're after!
