Locked files are now blocked for opening. Behaviour should be changed to the option to open the file as Read Only.
Thanks for submitting your idea, Johannes.
We will consider for future development.
Agreed. It should simply block users from saving the file. The best behaviour would ofcourse be to use the built in Office "file is locked by user, open in read only?" functionaility.
From 18.2, locked files can be opened in read-only mode from Drive
