Owner lock required when adding existing element to diagram
« on: January 27, 2021, 05:50:39 pm »
Details:
When using "Require user lock to edit" it used to be enough to lock the diagram in order to add an existing element to the diagram (as link)
Pretty recently (v15) this has been changed. Now you also need a lock on the owner of the diagram (element or package), which is very annoying.


Steps to Reproduce:
- Set security to "Require user lock to edit" mode
- Apply user lock to diagram, but not to the owning package
- Drag an existing element onto the diagram
- Notice the error message

It's not annoying,  it's WRONG!

My usual, "What is the rationale?" Will likely go unanswered, as usual.

I don't agree.

It might be WRONG, but it is definitely still annoying. ;D
