How to lock objects from moving

Sometimes, you'll have sections of a page that you don't want to accidentally reposition while adjusting another part of your page.  Avoid that by locking certain objects on your page in place. 

To lock an object:

  1. Select the object you’d like to lock.
  2. Go in the Editing Menu under the “Arrange” tab and click “Lock” at the bottom of the menu.
  3. Click “Save” and “View Live” to save your changes.

Notice that the resize handles turn into small X’s? You’ve set the lock correctly.

Locked objects cannot be selected as a group, you’ll need to select them one at a time. 


To unlock an object

  1. Select the locked object that you want to unlock.
  2. Go into the Editing Menu under the “Arrange” tab.
  3. Click the “Unlock” button at the bottom of the menu.
  4. Click “Save” and “View Live” to save your changes.
