SlickEdit 2021 26.0.1on Mac can't merge during diff
« on: March 01, 2022, 05:08:56 pm »
I have a local file and file on "cifs" mounted drive. I'm doing a diff between them and trying to merge local file changes into network-mounted file, but get "command not allowed in read only mode" error. The diff window has the "read only" checkbox enabled and grayed out.
When I close the diff window, I can edit and save the network-mounted file just fine.

Are you comparing two files or comparing a file with version control?

Is the buffer up read-only?  Is the file read-only on disk?

2 files... same name. One on my MacBook, one on the network-mounted drive.

The paths are different, right?

I have to take a look at how diff handles permissions in this case.

Can you PM me an email address?  It will help if I can send a test macro.

For anybody following this thread, Source Diff wasn't getting run if launched from the command line (vsdiff) with the filenames specified already.
