I am a site collection administrator. When I go into SharePoint Designer 2010 I can see everything. However, when I edit a Master Page, or Page Layout, I get the following error:

You do not have permission to do this operation. Ask your site administrator to change your permissions and then try again, or log on with a user account that has this permission. To log on with a different user account click OK.

I have made sure that all the files on the site are checked-in/approved, and still no luck.

Anyone have any ideas for things to look at, or try?

Note: This looks to be the same as this issue, just in 2010.

  • Where is your master page located? check your master page gallery permissions.

I see 2 different options :

  • Could it be that you disabled the SharePoint Designer in the Site Collection Advanced Settings?
  • Do you have some WebApplication policy that are set on that WebApplication that would give you readonly permission ?

  • You are editing from a client machine, of directly from the server ? Dec 21, 2010 at 21:20
  • Editing from both a client and directly on the server produce the same result.
