How do I lock layers?

How do I lock layers?

Step 1

Just like objects, layers can be manipulated as well. However is this used for making designing easier and not for designing itself.

Step 2

When you can work with different layers above of eachother selecting the right objects can be a quite tedious task. In Figma you can lock layers to make designing easier.

Step 3

When you select a layer in the layer pane, a lock and eye will appear. when you click the lock (it will close) the layer is locked and can't be selected. You can also do this by right-clicking the object and select "Lock/Unlock."

Step 4

To unlock, click the lock again (it will open) or right-click and select "Lock/Unlock."

Step 5
