Author/Date folder security

I now want to store some old sensitive emails in InScribe, but I don't seem to be able to get the folder security feature to work. I couldn't find anything in the help pages.

Here is what I have done:

1) Made a folder containing some local messages.
2) Set a password from File > Security settings. I have tried setting the Read and Write/Delete permissions to either None or User.
3) From the context menu for the local folder in #1, set the access permissions to Read:user Write/Delete:User and click OK.

When I reopen the folder in #1, I am not asked for a password, and looking at the context menu both Read and Write/Delete permissions have None checked.

I'm pretty sure I have InScribe in portable mode, but running off a hard drive F:.

My InScribe is in Desktop mode, at least according to Scribe.txt.

It's probably broken. Been a long time since I used it myself. I'll have a look at it when I have a moment.

I've fixed this for the next build.

It seems to work fine.

Feature request1: It would be nice to have an inherit access permissions for all subfolders option.

That is if you have a local folder which you have protected, then you can protect all subfolders by checking the option.

Feature request2: Require permissions when expanding the folder.

Currently anyone can expand a folder that requires permissions.

Thanks for having a look at this.
