We have purchased parts we are saving off into a common library to allow everyone to utilize common purchased parts from a common location. The situation is that by being a library part when you open (or insert) the item you can't alter it directly. A good thing. The issue is we can open any file from here, do a Save Copy As and save it to our workspace, open the local copy, alter the heck out of it, then Save Copy As and directly over write the library file. Not really secure.
How does anyone else handle security for library parts so it's not cumbersome to use but protects the parts from "accidents"???
