My file won't open from within Connect Assets
Currently only files <1GB in size can be opened directory from Connect Assets
My files is taking a long time to open
This can be effected by trying to use the feature on large files. If your file is large please wait for Connect Assets to load it onto your creative application
I receive the warning: "Edit in Progress"
When another person is editing the same file you've selected you will see a warning:
Connect Assets cannot prevent two people from working on the same asset. Please close the asset until it is available to prevent issues with saving the file
