Locking and unlocking objects

Visme allows you to lock and unlock objects.
Every object resides on a layer and that layer can be kept locked or unlocked.

Why would you want to have an object locked?

Sometimes you want to work near a stationary object and don’t want to keep accidentally selecting it. By locking the shape, you no longer have to worry about accidentally moving it when editing objects around it.
