By lockdown I mean lock in place but still be able to print it and export it. I just don't want anyone, including me, to inadvertently move/delete/alter the shape. Ok, if you must know, a company watermark pattern.
Perhaps the 2019 version can do this?
Also tried using the page background feature t but then you can't put anything behind it.
Is there something you need that "Lock Object" doesn't do?
Other than not being able to select it at the same time as non-locked objects for a "selected only" export?
A layer can be locked / printable / visible, too.
Oh yeah, thought it wasn't working before but now I see it does work. Just hit the pencil icon on that layer. Sorry, I had a brain fart or something.
