To avoid accidentally moving items once they are on your form, you can lock items into place. Locking an item ensures it cannot be moved or re-sized using the mouse or arrow keys, however size adjustments are still possible using the Properties window.
To lock an item on a form:
- Click an item so it has focus.
- Right-click and select Lock from the menu.
An image of a padlock appears to the left of the item. The item cannot be moved until it is unlocked. The item's properties are still modifiable from the Properties window.
To unlock an item, right-click on it and select Unlock
from the menu.
