    Blue Bin Lock Status Indicator

    An editor showed me something new today.  All his opened bins showed blue Bin Lock Indicators.  The bin tabs said "Lock Available".  He could not save the bins, and instead had to do a save as.  There were NO .lck files in his project and no other editors were listed as having the bins open.

    I can't find anything on blue locks or making locks available.

    This was added in 8.10.

    "A new bin lock icon color (blue) has been added that indicates that the owner of the shared bin lock has released the lock and the bin is now available for read/write. If you click the blue icon, you now control the bin and the icon turns green. You can make changes in the bin until you release the lock or close the bin."

    Re: Blue Bin Lock Status Indicator

    Thank you. I searched the version 8 editing documentation and did a general Google search, but found nothing.  Next time I see something I've never seen before, I'll check the What's New docs.

    Another new feature just bit two of my editors.  Who knew you could mute entire tracks in a sequence?  (Ansewer: Someone who reads the "What's New" documentation.)
