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, or perhaps you have an image acting as a background (such as shape behind a text element).

By locking the shape you no longer have to worry about accidentally affecting it when editing objects around or above it.


Tip: Click Unlock Object showing above can easily unlock any objects.

How do I lock/unlock an object?

Right click on the object and select Lock/Unlock option,


Or click Object(s) on the top left corner, locate the object layer and then click the lock icon (it will become dark when locked)
