Lockdown Design Elements and Avoid Mistakes

Graphic design brings together many different elements. From brand colors to logos and images, some are just simply not meant to change. With many people working to bring a project together, mistakes can happen. Simplified's component lock feature lets you lock certain elements of your design in order to ensure they won't be accidentally altered when collaborating with others.

How to Lock Layers in the Graphic Designer

Go the 'Graphic Designer' and select the design you want to work on.
Once you're in the design, select the ••• icon.
Then, select the component you want to lock and click the 'Lock' icon to lock the layer.
If you want to 'Unlock' a component, click on 'Layers' to find the component and click the 'Unlock' button.
