Make locked files more visible

Locked files have an icon indicating it in the list view and the custom view only.

If a externally shared file is locked, there's no indicator in the grid view. Only the yellow link appears.


If a file is locked, it should be more visible.

Maybe some small changes would do the trick:

  • different border

  • different background

  • add a class to the row/card , if the file is locked. So we use css to style locked files the way we want

    The idea to make the locked file more visible is really good. Maybe it is also a possibility to create a pop up with the hint that the file is locked.
