After you've recorded or added a region, you don't want to unintentionally move that region.…To guard against that, you can lock the region in place.…There're two ways to lock a region.…The first is called edit lock.…I'm going to double-click on these regions here and then go up to the Region…menu and choose Edit Lock.…You'll see down in these regions a solid lock icon.…Now if I go to the Grabber tool here and I try to grab these and move them, I…get this warning, "This command will affect one or more locked regions."…You can either cancel or allow it, but at least you'll know that this region is…locked, and you won't accidentally or unintentionally move that region.…
I'm going to hit Cancel.…There are key commands for edit locking: Command+L on a Mac or Ctrl+L in Windows.…You can toggle any regions that are locked by using this command.…Time lock is a slightly more lenient type of locking.…The region will be locked in time, but you can edit it as long as the edits…don't move the region in time.…
