Unlocking a Visual Composer Model
Question: How can I unlock a Visual Composer model?
If a Visual Composer model was not properly closed (e.g., if you exited from the browser without closing the model), the model might be locked. A locked model cannot be opened for editing, only for read access.
There are two ways to unlock a Visual Composer model:
Using the Unlock Models... menu
Log on to Visual Composer and close any open models---you should see an empty storyboard. Choose from the menu Model -> Unlock Models... and select all models to be unlocked. Click on the Unlock button.
Note: In order to unlock models in the MyModels folder, every user can do that for his/her own models. To unlock a model in the Public folder, a user needs administrator rights and the VC_Role assigned.
Using the Visual Administrator
Log on to the J2EE Engine with the Visual Administrator. Navigate from the Global Configuration tree to the client-workspace folders as follows: Services -> Configuration Adapter -> developmentserver -> client workspaces. Open the Propertysheet.properties file for the locked model. The Display configuration dialog box is displayed. Change the value of the read-only property from true to false. Click OK.
