Notice: Alpha code is read only

I'm getting this Notice at the bottom of any file that I imported as a Library in my Algorithm Framework, preventing me from editing them within the Framework project. This wasn't happening before, so I'm wondering if there's a setting that I'm missing, or if it's a new "feature." Hoping it's not permanent, as only being able to edit the main.py file is impeding my workflow.

Hey Taewoo indeed its a new "feature" =P! We had many reports of people losing work by editing library files accidentally.

The error message is misleading and will be fixed shortly, but libraries can now only be edited from their actual project. You can resume normal editing by having two tabs open, one for library project and the other for your algorithm.

Perhaps we can make this a setting so you can edit if you'd like?

Profile-Setting "Allow Libraries Edit" could also be an option

Thanks for the response Jared. I definitely see the argument for it, but an "Edit Libraries" option in the account settings like Mykola mentioned, or perhaps a "Lock" toggle for individual libraries would be greatly appreciated. Especially when it comes to library files like for the Alpha Model, quickly being able to edit its contents helps the backtesting process.
