Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Unable to edit item properties while item checked out

Hi!

We're testing a upgrade to Sharepoint Foundation 2010 from WSS 3.0.

One of the workflow procedures that was in place in WSS 3.0 was that a user would check out an order, enter it into our order entry system, then go back to Sharepoint and edit properties, so they could tag it with an order number, and then check it back in.

However, with the Sharepoint Foundation upgrade, Sharepoint does not let the user "Edit Properties" while the item is still Checked Out.

We could check it back in to enter the order number, but there's the risk that another user will Check Out that order, before the original user has a chance to enter the order # into the properties.

Is there a security override feature or something that is preventing something WSS 3.0 allowed us to do?

If I RDP to the SharePoint server itself, it seems to work. However, it does not work from other machines.

Actually, it turns out we need to uncheck "Use my local drafts folder" when checking out the docs. I just need to find a way to change the default setting that has that box checked

Experimented with the local drafts folder option, unchecking it allowed us to edit properties.
