    Very useful; thank you.

    Would love if the “Project Window” would offer an object lock much like Photoshop to disable accidental moving/changing of things which are already set in their final position, like the walls.

    Thanks to the incredible support staff; they informed me that I can lock an object in the Object Properties palette under the Transform tab > position mode. There’s a ‘Lock Position’ check box. Same for rotation and scale.
    Can’t believe I’ve overlooked these for so long.
    Thank you guys!
