I am trying to update the leads object with new fields I created using force ide. However, whenever I try I get the following error: Eclipse Force IDE: Found read only local file content not in sync with remote instance. Use Synchronize to resolve conflict.

I have tried to right click on the xml and selecting the synchronize with server option but after I do and attempt to save these fields to the server this problem still persists.

Please help enter image description here
