Protecting Colours

When you are finished painting some zones, you can protect the colour swatch they are associated with so the work cannot be accidentally painted over.

To use Protect Colour:

1. In the Colour view, select the colour to be protected.

2. In the Colour view menu, select Colours > Protect Colour. You can also right-click on the selected colour and select Protect Colour.

A red bar will appear on the side of the colour, notifying you that it is locked.
