  1. Lock placeholder and other objects to prevent modification

    Lock placeholder and objects and its preferences so they cant be modified in any way. Also make option to autofit och manually crop the added items like images to image placeholder.

    Lock dont need to be permanent. But if you want to undo the lock you have to rightclick on object and "unlock".

    Why do we need this? To create templates that follow certain guidelines and rules that your company, organisation, school etc have. This would prevent the user to accidently move an object on the created presentation or tutorial.
