File sharing problem between accounts

  OliverMoose 22:23 26 Nov 2018

I have two accounts set up on my macbook pro, and I've set the Shared folder as 'read and write' for all users. If I go into Sharing within System Preferences the Shared folder is set to 'read and write' for everyone. And same again if I go into Get Info for the Shared folder (and folders within Shared).

But, if I open a Word file that was created by the other account, it says 'read only ...'

Is there some other setting that I don't know about? How do I share files between accounts so they can be read and write? Cheers.

Okay. I found it. Within setting in Get Info there's a 'apply to enclosed items' check-box. Solved.
