8.5. Why can I not checkout a file offline?

If you have the 'Multiple Checkout' policy disabled then you cannot checkout a file offline (i.e. when disconnected from the server). If PureCM allowed this then multiple users would be able to checkout the same file, if either of them was working offline.

If you want file locking but also want the ability to work offline then you should enable the 'Multiple Checkout' policy. You should then go through each file type and enable the 'Automatically Lock When Checking Out' flag.
