Manually apply schema lock when working with representations & multiple MXDs

    When working with representations and a file geodatabase, it would be great if it were possible to apply a schema lock so that the representation symbology can be edited.

    Currently when I have multiple MXDs open, all of which reference the same representation, the symbology cannot be edited. Even closing all MXDs down, except 1, doesn't work. They all have to be closed a reopened.

    It is possible to edit data in a file geodatabse with multiple MXDs open so there is a president there for allowing this to happen.

    The only reason I have multiple MXDs open is because I can't have multiple layout windows in the same MXD. I am currently using ArcMap 10sp4.
