I'm workling on a single layer with lots of elements within this, whenever I go to lock a single element e.g. a "Vector Rectangle" it also locks various other elements on the same layer... none of these are grouped, they are all free single elements e.g. multiple vectors....Is anyone experiencing this problem?
e.g. Create a document with a single layer and add lot's of elements (cause a scroll on the layer tab) - then scroll to th ebottom of the layers panel and lock one of the bottom elements...does it also lock other elements?
I just tested on Lion CS6 and worked properly
Be sure only 1 object is selected when you lock
I tried this on Snow Leopard and it worked properly. (Incidentally, it shouldn't matter what's selected on the canvas; locking objects causes them to be deselected anyway.)
I don't know what could be causing that problem for you. In my test, I used a simple ellipse, duplicated multiple times.
