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.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I lock a component, am I the only one who can unlock it?

Brent Franklin

Simple Design Tools Packing a Punch

The image tools and design tools are awesome. The tools work flawlessly and make actions like removing a background simple. When I discovered the Ai integrations, I didn't realize where the industry was with things like image generation and that sparked a whole new rabbit hole to explore.


Aaron Springer

Great canva alternative !!

I have switched from canva to simplified as they have fresh designs and everyone uses the same Canva designs so this helps to differentiate us from the usual designs seen online.


Noor Nabi Shaikh

An amazing all-round tool for any kind of content creation

The Graphic design tools, the AI, always give helpful insights and the ability to animate the posts in just one 1-click, including the templates, which help to create a start.
