How lock text & data fileds to prevent "graphical" changes but allow editing and fill in?

Hi,

Does anyone knows if I can lock text and/or data fields to prevent any graphical changes like moving or stretching?

I tried it with the level lock and the element attribute lock, but it prevents also editing texte and fill in data fields.

I hope there is a possibility to do this. If not......., I would be happy if this could be added further :)

Thanks

Regards

    Yes, it's correct behaviour. If you lock an element (regardless directly the element or because it's placed in the locked level), the element is locked as the whole, its content, position and attributes etc. Text is stored as one element (simple or complex) and it's not possible to manage access to it in two different ways.

    You can create Change Request to add this feature, but I don't believe such feature will accepted. An opposite feature (to set a text as read-only) can be implemented simplier and would be valuable also.

    I think it can be solved by MDL application, which will monitor element movements placed in a particular level. But it will work only if the application will be started, so it's not 100% solution.
