  • Lock: You can lock objects to hold them in place.

When the user clicks the "Lock" icon in the top toolbar, the lock icon turns red. The user selects the element on the canvas and tries to move it, but it stays anchored to its position on the page. With the conversation bubbles element selected, the user then clicks the lock icon again. The lock icon turns grey, and the user selects the element from the design canvas and is able to move it out of position. End description.]

  • Layer: These arrow shaped button help you layer the objects on your designs.
