Lock it! :)

    How many times were you annoyed by the fact your perfectly placed elements moved accidently? Or the cat sat on the keyboard and your work just went to hell? If that made you “go bananas” – here’s the solution: we present new
    JustProto element property – Lock/Unlock!

    Since now on you can block certain elements using the Lock/Unlock option in the top bar over your workbench.



    Blocked elements can’t be added to selection or moved. If you press delete or want to cut blocked elements you’ll be asked for confirmation. You can still copy blocked elements – all the properties will remain the same for both lements, except the copy wont be blocked.

    Every blocked element will have tooltip with name of the element and a small padlock. You may find it useful, especially while making more complex prototypes.

    Try it on your prototypes! ;)
