I have just upgraded from v8.5 to v11 and since then have been having problems with locked fields. Previously the document was saved to the server with a locked field and the field remained locked through reloads. I understand that in the latest versions Publisher opens the document without loading the data and begins the refresh from an empty document, which is why the lock is being lost I suspect.
I though that the solution would be triggers. I have added 2 triggers to the post reload action. The first selects the required value and the second locks the field. However, it seems that these arent actually doing anything post reload. Should I be trying something different?
