Conflicts found at propagation of writing access area
We were using the "Protect Objects" utility to elevate the writing access area on a group of objects (with propagation). After the utility runs, a window appears showing "Conflicts found at propagation of writing access area": the writing access area conflict refers to the writing access area that is just lower than the one we elevated the objects to.
I first thought maybe they were on diagrams being modified by a different user at the same time, but was able to open the diagrams they appear in without a warning of them being locked by another user. We can individually elevate the writing access level of those "conflicts" via their properties. I looked at the error log but couldn't find any relevant entry.
Can someone explain what those conflicts are, and what causes them?
