Is it possible to "lock" a Streets & Trips map? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a map filled with pushpins of differents POI of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I am willing to send that map to several clients and friends but wish to be able to LOCK that map so nobody may change any details or phrases contained in it, just to view it in a "read only" mode. Can a Streets & Trips map to be locked like a Word or a .pdf document without possibility to alter the content excepted by its creator? If so, please explain the method or the way to do it. Thanks!

  • Hi Serge,

    Not exactly what you want, but you could right-click the file (in Windows Explorer), select "Properties", "Attribute > Read-Only", then click "Apply", "OK".

  • Thanks Marvin, I have tried it following your advice and it does a part of the job although it is always possible to rename the map after altering the original first. I wonder why S&T never thought to that kind of "locking" protection for their maps?... If anyone think of something else... I would gladly listen!
