Locking and Unlocking Layers

You can prevent modifications to a layer by locking in it. While a layer is locked, you cannot select it, manipulate it, draw in it, or change its timing in the Timeline view.

Locking a layer is especially useful if you want to avoid selecting it in the Camera view. Clicking on a locked drawing with the Transform tool in the Camera view will select whichever drawing is behind it, if there is any. This can help ensure that backgrounds and, more importantly, foreground elements, remain in place once they have been properly positioned.

NOTE When a layer is locked, you can still make changes to its timing in the Xsheet view.
