Editing a document in a workflow

I have a document that myself and a couple of co-workers are working on.
Unbeknown to me one of my co-workers decides to place the document into a workflow for review.
I didn't notice and use the action dropdown button choosing edit.
I work on the document some more and save.
It's now that I realise that I cannot save a further version of the document because it's in a workflow.

I would really appreciate if the software could inform me when I select edit that a workflow is effective and I will not be able to save another version.
I know I can set the view option to workflow status but this is not something that I thought to do.
An enhancement like this would save my time and frustration.

This problem has been resolved.
Now, clicking on "Edit" from the drop down menu fires a check and dispays an appropriate message if the document cannot be checked in.
