Templates in SO_ARC2

Have a customer using a second SO_ARC for secure docs (Access to files to certain users at the domain level).

In SO the users have different superoffice.ini files.  Normal users have just ARCHIVEPATH=SO_ARC.

Secure users have ARCHIVEPATH=SO_ARC2 and ARCHIVEPATH2=SO_ARC so they can see nomal documents when they add a document it goes into the secure archive.

Admin users have ARCHIVEPATH=SO_ARC and ARCHIVEPATH2=SO_ARC2 so they can see the secure documents but their documents are put in the non secure archive.

I now learn that they have been using this to also differentiate between variations of the same template.

If a secure user creates from the template it finds one version of template.xls in SO_ARC2\Template if a normal user does the same it finds a different version of template.xls in SO_ARC\Template.

Latest updates to 8.2 look to have stopped this from working and secure users are getting the SO_ARC\Template version.

Anyone else used this method and/or know why it might not now be working?

Obviously if a solution cannot be found they will return to the method off having two templates with one only available to the secure group, but would prefer not to have to do that.

Hi David,
What was their previous version, where this still worked?

To be honest I'm not sure, I guess it must have been OK in 7.5 because they were on that for a good length of time.  Might have been OK in 8.0, but it might just be that they hadn't reported it.

Ok thanks, I am inclined to suspect that since many issues arose after porting to the netserver doc-plugin in 8.0.
I will log this now.
