I posted some other feature request about selecting an object without move, as sometimes just clicking the mouse button for a blasted microsecond and a tiny jitter will move your object. Yesterday and today I’ve been working with some easel projects where I’d like to quickly select multiple objects in an area to mass change the cut depth, and could use a “lock an object” feature.
For arguments sake, I’m making a bullseye target, multiple circles cut “on path” with some straight lines towards the smallest inner ring. The largest circle is a full depth cut-out with tabs. Each inner circle will be a groove cut 1/16th. When making my default circles (and straight lines) they get a cut depth defaulted by Easel.
I decide that I want to change that cut depth for all the rings and lines. But I can’t select everything BUT that outer ring, that’s just near impossible with the “drag a selection box” tool. I end up selecting everything…then going back and selecting the outer ring and changing it specifically.
I’d like to “lock” that object in place. No moves, no depth changes. Unless I unlock it.
That way I can’t ever accidentally drag it and slide it around or change it’s depth with another object.
Thoughts on something like this?
