Thanks everyone.  I think the problem was just that the message it threw when he attempted to check the file out made it sound like it hadn't worked.

I run "p4 edit <file>" in unix like platform. Same thing should work.

I just did "write click on file"-> "Open Command Window Here" -> "in the command window i did p4 eidt <file>".

Hope it works.

Hello All,

I've got a user that's run into the message upon trying to submit a resolved file telling them that it's been tampered with and so needs to be re-opened for edit (it's likely a local build on their machine may have messed with it).  He's using P4V and cannot see the option to do so.  In a test case I ran, I don't see it either.  I don't remember this being a problem back with P4Win, so I was thinking it might just be a terminology thing, but I can't see what else it might be from the options in the right click context drop on the file.

Can anyone tell me what we're missing?  How can they get this file reopened?  They're a bit dead in the water until I get this sorted.

Thanks all.
