How to unlock layer in new design tool.
Posted: Friday, October 19, 2018 2:41:31 PM
So I see we have a new design tool. Can someone please tell me where the option to unlock a layer is?


Oh, and the box we used to center a layer or text, and move it left to right, up and down. Copy and Paste??

Locking/Unlocking was explained by Shelli on Page 2 in this thread: Design tool Feedback (Zazzle MOD Thread)

The box... directional pad, rather... is gone :/

Hi, I don't mind explaining it again.

To the left of each layer's image thumbnail is a tiny little blue padlock when you hover your mouse over that layer. If you click on it it turns gray indicating that it is locked.


I tried to get a screenshot for you but it didn't show the padlock... Sad

I hope this helps!Love

The blue padlock under the layers option does not unlock in my greeting card design. I have tried numberous times... not working!
What else can I do?..very frustrating!!

If the padlock is blue, it is unlocked. If it is locked it shows as gray.

I think the color of the lock is browser dependent. I work in Opera and the lock only appears if it is locked and is black. If not locked then I have to mouse over the layer to see a grayed out lock.

In Firefox, I see a lock only if the layer is locked. Any unlocked layer shows no lock at all. Thus, if I didn't already know where the empty spot is, I wouldn't be able to lock a layer.

Opinion: The lock should be larger and more sharply defined. Also, gray symbolizes something that can't be clicked, and blue is symbolic of an active hotlink. I understand the reticence to use red and green, which hits those with the most common type of colorblindness, so maybe using the picture of a lock isn't the best choice, not in such a minuscule size, but I can't immediately think of something better.
