Protect Fixups, Checks, Profiles, Process Plans and Libraries against changes
You can prevent unplanned changes to Fixups, Checks, Profiles, Process Plans and Libraries by locking them - i.e. by making them write-protected.
Checks and Fixups cannot be individually locked; instead, they are automatically locked whenever a Profile which uses them is itself locked.
Some of the predefined Fixups, Checks and Profiles are protected by default. They can be identified by looking for the lock icon.
The screenshots are showing the sister product pdfToolbox. The functionality in this part of pdfaPilot is identical to pdfToolbox.
A locked profile is protected against changes.
Fixup used in other Profiles or Process Plans
A Fixup (or a Check) can only be changed if it is not being used in a locked Profile or Process Plan.
You can see how it is being used in the corresponding interface marked “Usage...” within the same dialog.
Call up the listed Profiles as required, click “Edit...” and change the lock setting to “Open”.
You can then edit the Fixup (or the Check).
