Is it possible to save the model as .XML format with read only privilege so I can provide the model to my co-worker for viewing purpose without modifying my saved .XML model?
There is not an option to save a model with read-only privilege in TDM v 2 and v 3 either. Below is the workaround:
1. Change this property for the particular model manually by right-clicking the model | Properties | select the ReadOnly checkbox. The other person will be able to open the model and view it but will not be able to save changes - access will be denied.
(We have tested it here and found out that the read only property is not preserved by Windows while sending the .txp file to another person. So, we recommend to save the model to a shared location and set it as read only there.)
2. Shared discs - to create a folder where the model(s) will be stored. Define access privileges to this folder for other users of the team.
3. Generate HTML report with the screenshots of ERD
