QSAVE does not work because AutoCAD considers the drawing to be read-only.

Issue:

Suddenly you are unable to save an open drawing because AutoCAD considers the file as read-only. The drawing you are working with is saved on a network.

Causes:

Temporary network issues can cause this error.

Solution:

  • Wait a few seconds for the network issue to clear and try to save again.
Or...
  • Do a Save As and then replace the old version of the drawing with the new one.
