I've looked in the archives and found nothing regarding my situation in

I just started working in a development environment with FM books,
using Microsoft's Visual Source Safe as a document control mechanism
(inherited from the programmers). With this setup, it seems that only
one person can have a book checked out at one time. This has been
causing some workflow problems, as you might imagine.

Is there a way with this current setup that will allow different people
to check out different chapters of the same book at the same time? Our
graphics imported by reference especially don't seem to like this.

Is there an alternative setup that would serve better?

Thanks for any suggestions,
Laura Tarwater
