We're working for a customer with Adobe Creative Cloud Files. The project (InDesign file) is stored in a shared folder (including links). If I open the InDesign file and the client opens the file at the same time, no one will receive a warning that two people are accidentally working in the same file. That's annoying, because that's how mistakes happen (a conflicted file is generated/we have to compare the files).
When we work in the office on the server, we get a message: The file can not be opened because someone else is using it. Is it possible that this message also appears when working on Adobe Creative Cloud File? Or how can we handle this problem?
I use CC to work files on different computers, so I'm the master of disaster. Customers have normally only read access to my files if any... Your case is different, but I thought that Indesign handles file locking on it's own and does not use the OS for that.
A simple on the fly ad-hoc possibility would be to rename the file like "ImportantJob.myname.indd". So by convention write access is prohibited when the "locking" is in place.
