c++.dos - Editing Source Code

Cannot seem to edit source code in the IDDE.  
When I first open a project the source seems to 
be protected and I cannot edit.  However if I open
a new window I can edit. 

Looked in FAQ, lessons but cannot find what I need
to do.  Is there a toggle or something?

Regards

Check to see if the source file itself is marked read-only (a file

Walter, fixed the problem.  In the Project window
I right clicked the source file, and changed the 
option from "read only" to "read/write".  New it 
was there somewhere!!!

Thanks again for your help. Im impressed with ditialmars
compiler.  Its excellent value for money.

Kind regards

Yours blushing with the blatant self-aggrandisement

P.S. Happy New Year everyone
