Selecting/Manipulating a Locked Object
If you click on an object and the program says the object is locked then you need to select it in one of three ways.
- VERSION 4.0 ONLY: Press CTRL+SHIFT when you click it and it will select it despite being locked
- Select it entirely using Rubber Band Selection which is when you click and hold the mouse and drag a selection ENTIRELY AROUND IT.
- Click the SELECT tab over the object library and then check the checkbox next to its name to select it (note: if you have a hard time finding it by name you should use the aliases feature to make it more distinct once you've found it).
