File Status and Read-Only Files

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Reference Manual » Source Code Editor »

Wing adds status indicators to the titles shown for files in editor tabs, menus, and the status area in the lower left of the window:

* indicates that the file has been edited and has unsaved changes.

(r/o) indicates that the file is read-only.

(r/p) (in Wing Pro) indicates that reading the file from a remote host is in progress.

Files that are read-only on disk are opened in a read-only editor. The file can be made writable by right-clicking to select Properties and then toggling Read-Only on Disk under the File Attributes tab. Permissions are changed only for the owner of the file. On Linux and macOS, group and world permissions are never altered.
