Symptoms

View Only user has ability to modify switch plans (or at least the appearance of the ability)

Unpublished Bug 26935275 added the ability for view only users to open switch plans and safety documents.  But the view only user should not be able to modify these switch plans and safety documents.

You are finding that the following functions are enabled:
a. from the switching sheet list, copy steps
b. from opened switch plans, find and replace, copy steps, copy steps as go-back steps

You can not actually do anything after copying the steps, but these functions should not be enabled for the view only user.
Enabling 'Find and Replace' makes sense so that you can use the 'Find' part, but too much of the 'replace' part is still enabled.

Changes

Applied 2.3.0.1.1 or newer patch bundle, the above changed was included there.
