Info: Performing the step described in this article requires direct server access. Depending upon how your system is hosted and the level of access you have to that system, coordination may be required with your Partner or WoodWing Support team.
Editing articles using Studio is only one way of working on articles within Studio Server. Other methods are by using InDesign or InCopy (both with Studio installed).
In some workflows it can be beneficial to not allow users to edit articles in Studio, but to have them use any of the other editors instead.
This is especially useful when using Tracked Changes. Studio currently does not support articles that contain Tracked Changes and by default won't open them or (after configuring Studio), accepts all Tracked Changes when the article is opened.
Studio can therefore be configured so that articles can only be opened in read-only mode. This allows users to still view and copy the content of the article.
This is done by adding the following setting:
- File: configserver.php file
- Name of option: ContentStationReadWriteEditor
- Location: SERVERFEATURES list
