No "read only" warning using google drive for desktop



We just figured out that more than one person can open a file without the typical "read only" or other warning (leading to work not getting saved).  We recently moved to google workspace with google drive for desktop running our files through the shared google drive.  Any fixes?

When collaborating on a project stored in a shared drive/cloud folder the recommended approach is to use Project Sharing. If you'd like to do that - go to File->Project Sharing menu in Vectorworks and follow the steps. Google Drive (as well as Vectorworks Cloud Services, Dropbox, etc.) is a supported cloud platform for Project Sharing.
