"Modifiable" warning dialog

Question

Sometimes when I open files I see a dialog box warning me the file is marked as "modifiable" (see picture below). It usually appears when I try to open a file after my Mac or PowerCADD has unexpectedly quit. Why does that happen and should I be concerned about the integrity of the file?

Requirements

Any version of Mac OS? X, any version of PowerCADD 6 (Mac OS 10.3.6 and PowerCADD 6.2 or better recommended)
