.idlk files ignored in Creative Cloud.

When you open an Indesign file it creates a .idlk file that stops other users from opening the same file, when it's open by other users. Works great on a server.

 

On All cloud services we have tried, including Creative Cloud, that file is ignored and two people can easily open the same page at the same time. 

 

Does anyone know of a cloud service that allows the .idlk file to exist?

Hi John,

thankfully someone moved that thread over to the Adobe InDesign forum.

And to answer JayFOCUS' question: I think there is no solution other than to communicate to all participants if somone likes to work on an InDesign document on a cloud storage volume. One cannot rely on .idlk files in that environment.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
