Locking and unlocking a layer

Locking a layer prevents accidental changes to its contents. When a layer is locked, objects on it can't be selected or edited. When you unlock the layer, you can change any object it contains as long as the object is not locked.

To lock a layer

1 In the Object Manager Docker, click the layer name.

2 Right-click the layer, and click Properties.

3 Disable the Editable check box.

• You can also lock or unlock a layer by clicking its Pencil icon. A Pencil icon appears beside each layer name in the Object Manager. When a layer is locked, its Pencil icon is dimmed and the objects on that layer are also dimmed.

• You can lock and unlock individual, multiple, or grouped objects using the Arrange menu. For more information, see "Locking and unlocking objects" on page 185.

• You can't lock or unlock the Grid layer. Its Pencil icon is always grayed out.
