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):
Select the Arrange Menu and choose Lock.
Open the Contextual Menu, select the Arrange Submenu, and choose Lock.
Use the Lock Button located on the Main Toolbar.
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.
