Thanks for the suggestion!MichaelP commented
Just identified very similar contraints and lost some hours understanding what was going on. Not documented properly anyway.
Microsoft you really ought to change from "Thinking about it" to "Implementing". This lack of 'coordination' between your tools are killing their core purpose. OneDrive and SharePoint cannot live without each others in many use cases.
Here is the feedback report I have made via the OneDrive client:
As an IT Staff member I want to report what I consider as an anomaly.
I just lost few hours, to understand why one of my SharePoint online Sync library was showing the lock icon, and all files within being Read-Only.
Browsing on internet I found some sites discussing about that and start digging on my side.
In my case I activated the Minor/Major Versioning settings together with the option Draft Item Security to “Only users who can edit items”. Deactivating the later would bring back the Synced OneDrive folder back to editable mode.
I tell you: this is not acceptable. You must find a solution to have your tools working together, not introducing constraints to each others. I must be able to hide the draft version to the "standard" audience on my SharePoint library for obvious reasons, AND i must still have access to the file in my OneDrive for edition.
In the same veins, I must be able to activate Checkout required option, and been able to trigger checkout of a document either from my OneDrive folder of from the edition apps (Excel, Word, Etc). As a reminder the later was possible not so long time ago.
