Changes made to a Map Document are not seen by other users when the document is stored on a network


When changes are made to a map document (not to the actual data) and saved to a network file share, the next user to open the map document does not see the changes made by the previous user.


A known cause is that X-Tools Pro is installed on one or more client machines that have edited the map document.

Solution or Workaround

Uninstall X-Tools Pro from all machines accessing the map document, and run the MXD Doctor utility on the map document.
