    Hello Dev Team!

    In one of the last patches, the locking down of items received a change. Now, items in a locked down container cannot be individually released anymore.

    I'm sure there's a reason for this change, but it really is annoying for all people maintaining public libraries, rune libraries etc. Because if you want to change one item in the container, you have to release the whole container, change the item, put it back into the container, lock it down, and then change the access level of each item in the container anew.

    Is there a possibility to change this, so it works like it did before, where you could release single items in a container without having to release the whole container?

    Thanks!

    Sadly there was an exploit related to unlocking all the items in a locked down container. I maintain a museum and find it equally annoying when trying to add new items. And the same for my small rune library. I would love to see a fix for this as well. I would hate to loose some of my nostalgic pieces because I forgot to set them properly. I try to double and triple check but I'm forever fearful I'll loose something.
