Feature Request - Lockable Layers

Recommended Posts

I suggest adding a setting that allows a layer to be locked so it cannot be edited. This could be used to prevent accidental changes to original images or finished layers that need to be seen, but not touched.

I was using an image as a template for a drawing. When I turned off visibility to check my work, the original image became the active layer, and remained that way when I restored visibility to my drawing. Of course, I restored my image with Undo, but I lost a lot of work.

So, looking forward to Version 4.0+.

...exspecialy coz i sometimes get confused as to what layer in editing then it screws everything up
You could name your layers as you go along, relieving some of this confusion. It will help you to recognise your layers much quicker when switching back and forth, which, apart from cutting confusion, will save time also. And make your Layers window look oh-so pretty :P.
So, looking forward to Version 4.0+.

You are not the only one doing that. :wink:

If you use an image as a template for a drawing; try to make the image a bit transparent. Just so transparent that you notice it on your new line, when you start drawing in the wrong layer.

But I am FOR lockable layers.

Thanks, Lief. That is a truly excellent tip. :mrgreen:

With transparency at 100, any line I draw on the wrong layer is so dim, it alerts me immediately. And the dimmer template allows me to see my work more clearly while drawing.

although this does help, most of the time when i mess up a layer its not because i didnt know what layer i wanted to work on, its because i either clicked on the wrong layer or some how messed things up lol.

i think this would be a cool feature
