Unfortunately this would not work as I need to be able to pick individual blocks from these collection files and copy-paste them into another Rhino document
That works but is not very convenient - we need flexibility to decide whether I open the library to edit it (non read-only) or just as a source file (read-only). Going via File Explored every time and checking/unchecking the file type depending on what we need to do at the moment is cumbersome, as it is done very often with a lot of different library files.
It would be much better to have a checkbox in the File Open dialog to open ReadOnly for that particular session, and when closed, the file is back to normal.
That would also allow to avoid this popup:
(BTW - how do we get this dialog back if I say “Don’t show it again” ? )
Please allow for opening files in Read-Only mode from Rhino-level, not Windows-level, if possible.
( check box in the File Open dialog and an option in hyphenated command? )
