Assigning comprehensive locking to content and position

Locking lets you protect items and content from accidental changes. To lock content and position, you can do the following:


  • To prevent an item's size and position from being changed (and to prevent the item from being deleted), check Item > Lock > Position.
  • To prevent an item's contents from being edited, check Item > Lock > Story or Item > Lock > Picture.


Choose both of the locking options to lock both the item’s position and content.


To unlock selected items, uncheck the appropriate option in the Item > Lock submenu. Alternatively, choose Item > Modify and click the lock icon next to a field.
