Chapter 2. Page Layout > Locking Object Positions

Locking Object Positions

When you want to keep somebody from changing the location of an object, you can lock it by selecting it and then pressing Command-L/Ctrl-L (or choose Lock Position from the context menu or the Object menu). When an object is locked, you can select it, but you can’t change its position on the page or pasteboard. You can, however, move the object to another layer (we’re not sure why; perhaps it’s a bug). When you try to drag a locked object, the cursor turns into a “padlock” icon (see Figure 2-59).
