When editing projects, you’re always on the move – dragging and dropping objects in place. Object locking allows you to control which objects stay put and which ones you can still move around. This feature is particularly valuable for collaborative teams, ensuring template consistency while still allowing data updates and other necessary edits.
Lock and unlock objects
You can choose to lock an individual object or a group of objects. Locked objects cannot be deleted, resized, moved, or realigned. You can still change settings and edit data in locked charts and maps, as well as edit text fields.
- Select one item or a group of objects by dragging the mouse pointer over them.
- Right-click and choose the Lock option.
- To unlock, right-click on the object and select Unlock. You can also do this by clicking Unlock in the settings panel on the right. Feel free to unlock one object at a time.
If you wish to move, resize, or animate several objects at once, learn how to group them in the article on grouping objects.
