Family Security Guard – AlwaysRequirePassword & AccessRestricted

Thanks to feedback from reader Arno, I’ve added two new features to this app. I hope the provides the flexibility and control that everyone – or almost everyone 🙂 – would like. If not, please let me know.

  1. The password will be required to edit and open all family files if there is “AlwaysRequirePassword.txt” file in the BoostYourBIM-FamilySecurity.bundle\Contents folder.
  2. If this file does not exist, the password will only be required for families that contain a parameter named “AccessRestricted”. The value of this parameter does not matter, only whether or not it exists.

  1. Thanks for the heads up….
    One little remark. Is it possibleto make the accesristricted parameter a yes/no parameter. That way you can put the parameter in all your family template’s and you don’t have to add them every time.

    Do you have a poster of yourself, so i can put it on my bedroom wall. 😉

    • Hi Arno – I have made this change. The password restriction will now only apply if the parameter has a value of 1 (which is the same as it being a Yes/No parameter with a value of Yes.
