Chapter Locks

If a chapter has been edited and not saved before you attempt to edit that chapter, you may see a screen like the image below.

You can also see which chapters are locked by checking for a lock icon next to the chapter on the book's cover page (see image below).

If you encounter a chapter lock, check with the contributor who last edited the chapter to ensure their work is saved first. Once they have saved their work, you will be able to refresh your webpage and start editing.
