LDD Lock Issues

We have a user that has an issue where LDD (2009) objects won’t unlock/close.  For instance, if she opens a surface, it shows that its locked by her…but if she right clicks & closes it in Terrain Model Explorer, it still shows that it’s locked by her.


Alignments are funky too.  If she sets one to be current, it should typically unlock the last alignment…but it doesn’t & leaves behind a .lk# file.  If I open the same files on my computer, it releases the locks just fine.  She’s gotten pretty good at working around it by deleting the .lk# file from the LDD project folder…but this is obviously a pain.

Fixed by going to Projects > Project Manager > (pick the right project) > File Locks > Delete All (when everyone's out of project). This is possibly caused by orphaned locks.
