In the Catalog View and Catalog Pane, in the context menu for any item that includes tabular data, add direct opening options, such as- Open Table- Add to Current Map and Open (for Pane)- Add to <map name> and Open (for View)
The idea to open a table directly without adding to a map is here: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-ideas/open-and-edit-attribute-table-from-arccatalog/idi-p/9... (originally submitted for ArcCatalog, but still applicable to ArcGIS Pro Catalog Pane or View).
When you utilize this feature it appears to put a Schema Lock on the dataset, at least when working with an EGDB connection. I think I have ran into this issue when writing python scripts in the past, but didn't troubleshoot the issue at those times and just rebooted things.
I just rant into it when working with the Data Interoperability extension / FME workbench. I ran a workspace and it worked fine, but after I had opened the table from the Catalog pane in Pro, the workspace failed to run again due to a lock on the dataset. Nothing besides restarting Pro seemed to remove the lock; not closing the table, refreshing the database, or opening another table from the same database.
Bringing the dataset into a map and opening the Attribute Table from there did not have the same effect, and I was able to reproduce the issue and pinpoint it to opening a table from the Catalog pane
