Locking Objects

You can also lock objects so they cannot be moved or modified. This prevents people from inadvertently moving objects.

Tip

Locking objects is not the same as locking the layers of a document. (For more information on working with layers, see Chapter 8, "Long Documents.")


To lock the position of an object:

1.
Select the objects you want to lock.

2.
Choose Object >Lock Position. A small padlock appears if you try to move or modify the object .

Figure 4.54. The padlock icon indicates the object is locked.


Tip

Locked objects can be selected, copied, pasted, and their colors and contents can be modified.


To unlock objects:

1.
Select the objects you want to unlock.

2.
Choose Object > Unlock Position.
