Hey All,

I've created a template of a Calendar for the company I work.

There are some elements of the template that I don't want to be altered, more specifically the SCALE of some layers, is there a way to disable the SCALE property but keep the POSITION. Usually I hide these layers if I don't want them altered, but they need to move some elements around depending on location but the Scale needs to stay the same.

Thanks
PM

Nope -- you have to change the properties to the values you want.

Now, you can reset the Transform properties, but I'd doubt you want to do that. You'd have to start over from scratch on the layer.

you could use an expression to "lock" any value. for scale you can use [100,100] and once you do, any changes to the scale won't reflect to the layer as long as the expression is active.
