Selecting and Arranging Objects

Lock an Object

You can lock an object to prevent it from moving or editing. In fact, locking prevents the object from being selected. As a consequence, you won't be able to modify it.

To lock an object, select it and click on the Lock icon in the Layers panel.

It is possible to lock not only an individual object but a group or layer.

To unlock an object, click on its Lock icon in the Layers panel.

The Lock icon is located to the right from the object's name in the Layers panel.

Locked and unlocked objects in the Layers panel

It is also possible to lock and unlock objects using the Layer > Lock and Layer > Unlock All commands from the main menu.
