easier way to unlock layers
I, like most people, work with layers. Sometimes those layers are 5, sometimes closer to 100. Thing is, I don't want to have to scroll through 100 layers to find the 1 locked layer I want to unlock. It would be great if I could just right-click on it, then go through a 2-step process to unlock the layer. At the very least, if I double-click on said locked layer, I wish to be shown immediately in the Layers panel where that layer is.
In latest versions you can enable ’Select and Unlock objects on canvas ’ option in Preferences > Selection & Anchor Display section.
This will draw a small lock marker for those objects that are locked in your selection (they won’t be a part of selection box though) — click it to unlock an object.
Please try it and comment back about if it works for you.
Or with some keyboard combination like CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT Click? (And it will unlock that layer.)
I agree, 100 layers is too much to scroll through to find what you want to change. There should be a way to simplify the whole layers process. User preferences for layers would be awesome.
