Warning: you can not change read only file



  • I expected to be able to save my changes.
    Got instead:
    I got a warning strip at the top of the editor panel:
    "Warning: You are changing a read-only file." with a "Make writable" button.
    I cannot make it writable and cannot save the changes without renaming the file.

    Try opening it with a text editor, then save (with the same name - overwrite), making sure it is set to UTF-8 encoding and (optionally) Unix line endings.
