Set Read-Only, no writes

Menu item screenshot(s)


    This will toggle the 'Read-Only' status for ALL objects that
    might be opened using DFSee. The current status is indicated
    in the menu itself, in the first column for the menu-item.

    When set to Read-Only, no changes are allowed that write to
    the opened object. This will save you from unintended actions
    that could cause problems.

    Writing to normal files like logfiles and imagefiles is still
    possible, so you can make imagebackups, or PSAVE backups  even
    when working Read-Only.
