    Can anyone help me please??

    We have two imacs in the same building and to share files we use the drop box on my imac - now for some reason some Pages '09 files that we are both using seem to be causing us problems.
    I save the file to my drop box, set its sharing permissions to me and her to both read/write and all is ok.
    We can both look at the file and I can save it but then when she saves it - I open it but I can't then save it "you do not have permission - check file sharing permission using get info".
    I open the file sharing and it has removed my name and only has hers. I edit that to show us both and save it. She opens it and then she can't save it - it drives me round the bend and its the same for mulitple pages files???

    Can anyone tell me why once I set the permision and lock them with the padlock that her machine can change them and remove me???:confused:

    Is there something to be set to allow us both to read and write to the same file without this constant problem please??? :confused:

    Thanks for the reply but that seems to be a separate app/thing to download - which I dont know anything about - I'm talking about the shared drop box that shows in the public folder in finder - that comes with Mac OSX?
