Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Lock and unlock elements, part of OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.
…Locking objects in OmniGraffle is simple, but also very powerful.…Let's take a look at how it works.…Basically once any object is in a state…where, it's either done, or you know you're not…going to manipulate it for a while, you can…select it and just hit the lock right here.…As you can see the outline goes grey and all of…the handles that would allow us to make adjustments are x-ed out.…So you would use that if you know that…this isn't moving or changing for a long time, or…sometimes as you reach the end game in a document,…you just select everything, Cmd+A, and lock all of it.…
We actually unlocked, because one of our selections was already locked.…So now lock everything.…And you see that nothing can move, everything I select now has a lock on it.…And as I say, there's several reasons you would do…this, if you're totally done or you're done with just part.…Or, sometimes what I like, is if you've finished a part and you want…to work on top of it and make sure you not going to be moving anything.…Any tool I take, I can start to work…
