JSFL Quickies III :Selective Layer Lock

Selective Layer Locker

I often find when working in Flash (as I like to arrange my layers in logical orders) that selecting objects on the stage in a particular layer, and resizing using the subselection tool etc can be somewhat of a pain when you have a lot of objects on the stage.

I used to find myself locking and unlocking layers just so I could get to where I needed to go without accidentally selecting objects from other layers, so here’s a another quickie command from the pot. To use the ‘Selective Layer Locker’ command simply install the MXP below, click on a layer on the timeline that you wish to edit the contents of, and select ‘Commands > Selective Lock’ to lock all the other layers.
