When a read-only project is opened using the Graphics Builder, Project Editor, or Citect Explorer. the title bar shows the name of the project and a Read-Only message to indicate the project is read-only.
Opening the Express Wizard for a read-only project displays a message on the first page indicating the project is read-only:
In addition, any menu commands, toolbar buttons, and other operations that perform a write function are grayed out and/or unavailable. For example, the Copy command is available in the Project Editor for a read-only project, but the Cut and Paste commands are not.
When using the Process Analyst, you cannot create views to a project folder that is read-only and an alert message is displayed.
