      Hi Alexander,

      My client has discovered an SP2010 bug in the current DFFS release (its not clear which release it started) affecting the “This item is checked out to…” dialog. Previously this dialog would contain the “Editor” field. In the current release, “Editor” is omitted.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Navigate to /sites/dffs/Lists/CheckInOutBug/AllItems.aspx
      2. Ensure the item is currently checked out;
      3. Edit the item;
      4. Dialog is displayed;

      I looked back on older versions and found that this was changed in v4.4.4.0 in July 21, 2019 – but I forgot to mention it in the change log…

      The reason for this change was to give better control over the format of this message so the name wasn’t always appended to the end of the string.

      You can add it back by adding {CheckedOutTo} in the string – see attached screenshot.

      Of course, I must be blind. Thank Alex.
