File is being used by another program plus another general question


(SafeTex) #1

Hello

Since downloading the latest version, I can not add my rules to the grammar file as it is always 'open in another program'

But this message now comes up if the grammar file is the very first thing I open after launching Windows and have not opened any programs (except one or two vital programs on automatic startup)

At the same time, rather than writing rules to the LT grammar file, (with the risk of me screwing it up), I'd like to write them to a separate file that is used in conjunction with the grammar file when I use LT (a kind of 'my rules' file)

Is this possible please?

Thanks in advance for any help with either question

You can load your own rules, but you cannot use them at the same time as
the default rules.

Hello Daniel

But I used to be able to use my 'own rules' with the default rules by adding them to the grammar .xml

Why can't I seem to add them any more? What I mean is why do I get the message that the file is being used by another program? Is this a new thing to stop people adding to 'grammar .xml'?

Also, if yes 'how' do I create an alternative file to run instead of the default rules?

Hi

Finally got the answer. I made a mistake that I had made once before a long time ago and had forgotten about
I'd installed the whole file in 'programs' and Windows doesn't like that if you then try to write to it (the grammar rules were also in program)

Once moved, there was no problem

Thanks for the pointers
