Locking layers

Jump to Mobile

When you lock layers, it ensures that nothing on that layer is accidentally altered. Locking a layer can also be used to indicate completion. When changes need to be made to a locked layer, unlock it. When finished, you can lock it again. 

You can also lock layer transparency. Locking transparency has a different effect than locking a layer.

Pay attention to any warnings that appear. They will explain what is locked and needs to be unlocked to do certain actions.
