Is there a setting, which allow to open the file READ-ONLY by default?

The only way is to open from Explorer plug-in, right-click on files you want to open, and then select “Open as Read-only”.

Would you probably like to add a command-line switch allowing to open a file in the read-only mode?February 11, 2012 at 4:06 am #9996ArthurZParticipant
I did not see such a setting and i think it slightly defeats the purpose of using an “editor”.
However, I think it would not be too difficult to add a tool that passes the currently open file to a viwer or even write such a plugin.
I am also curious under what circumstances such a capability is really useful?February 11, 2012 at 9:40 am #9997
Opening a file in the Read-Only mode insure that you will not change it occasionally. In this mode the Editor works as a Viewer while preserving all highlights, tags and other settings.
A possibility to pass a Read-Only flag/switch/parameter from a command line is also might be very useful since it allows opening the files in the Viewer(Read-Only) mode automatically by just passing a file name to the script.
