Locking Figures

A Locked Figure is one that cannot be moved or resized until it has been unlocked. Attributes such as stroke, fill, shadow, etc... can still be manipulated on a locked figure. A minimum of one figure must be selected in order for this option to be enabled. Use one of the following methods to Lock a Figure(s):

  1. Select the Arrange Menu and choose Lock.

  2. Open the Contextual Menu, select the Arrange Submenu, and choose Lock.

  3. Use the Lock Button located on the Main Toolbar.

  4. Use the Command-L keyboard shortcut.

Use a Shift/Click combination to select multiple figures for locking. All objects within a drawing can be selected at once by choosing Select All in the Edit Menu or by using the Command-A keyboard shortcut.

A group of figures will appear as shown below when they are unlocked.

The group will appear as shown below once they have been locked.

The handles appear gray after a figure(s) or group of figures are locked. This handle attribute change serves as a visual indicator of the selected figure(s) being locked.
