Closing a file that is currently uploading to a server

Changes you make to a server file are first saved locally and then uploaded to the server. If you try to close a file during the upload, an upload progress dialog box appears. After the upload is complete, the file will automatically close. Cancelling this progress dialog box will cancel the closing of the file and return you to the program, leaving the file as Upload Pending.

If this occurs, you can do one of the following:

  1. In your file, click the File tab and then click Info.

  2. Under Upload Pending, click Resolve, and then choose Discard.
