Undoing a file check-out

Undoing a file check-out

If you check out a file, then decide not to edit it (or decide to discard the changes you made), you can undo the check-out operation and the file returns to its original state.

To undo a file check-out, do one of the following:

  • Open the file in the Document window, then select Site > Undo Check Out.
  • In the Files panel (Window > Files), right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), then select Undo Check Out.

    The local copy of the file becomes read-only, and any changes you’ve made to it are lost.
