What does the little lock in the editor do? #

If you already have a few shapes drawn on your screenshot/image (arrows, lines, etc.) you may experience trouble drawing new ones – they overlap with the previously created shapes and the editor switches to those. To avoid such problems we added a new feature – an edit lock. Using this lock you will be able to forbid editing of any old elements in a single click and create new ones without a problem.
