Layout components are "Locked" by default.

All layout components have the ability to be locked or unlocked.  For components that include this feature, such as the Flow layout component, it is set to “Locked” by default. You can click directly on the "locked" button to unlock and use the component. 

Locking prevents the hovering edit effect of components, as well as moving or accidentally opening a component’s edit dialog.

Locking a layout component makes it easier to edit the content inside without accidentally focusing on the layout. You can drag other components into a layout component in the locked or unlocked position.

Unlock to:

  • delete
  • cut/copy
  • drag a component above the locked layout component (see image below)
  • drag to another location on page

If a component is locked, you can not drag another component above it. You must first unlock the locked component to do so.
