Multi-User Environment Manage write access for shared documents in a multi-user environment. Users share a file when they have loaded the same file from the same location. Tooltips in the FeatureManager design tree inform you if a part, assembly, subassembly, or component is read-only. If another user with write access has the document open, the tooltip names the user.

To switch from a longer list of macro actions to a shorter list that displays only those macro actions that can be used in a database that has not been trusted, make sure that the Show All Actions button is not selected. When the Show All Actions button is not selected, the shorter list of trusted macro actions is available.
