Disable location of raster attachments?

Is there a way to disable location of raster attachments with the selection tool?  I don't want to eliminate the capability.  I just want to control it.  I have over a hundred high resolution aerial images attached to a single design file which is then referenced into the drawing file.  Even though the reference attachment containing the raster attachments is clipped, it still takes an awful long time to enter a design file that references that file.  Instead of maintaining the reference attachment, I am merging that attachment into the drawing file.  This only brings in the raster attachments that are displayed in whole or in part from the reference attachment and the clipping is retained.  Entry into the drawing file is much faster now, but with the rasters now directly attached (about a dozen per drawing) that leaves the raster attachments " vulnerable" to selection and manipulation, and that is getting in my way.  I've disabled the ability to delete the attachments via an element manipulation, but I really need not to be able to accidently select or manipulate them in any other way.  I can't turn the display of the rasters off because it need to see them to appropriately position callouts etc.  Is there a way to totally turn off the ability to manipulate raster attachments via the element manipulation tools and also the ability to select them with the element selection tool.  It's great that these operations can be perfomed, but that ability really needs to be enabled/disabled as needed within a design session - like the snap an locate locks in the reference attachments.

  • Hi Larry, I have filed CR #292124 and Product Management will have a look at it.

     In the mean time, you can lock your rasters (Element Info > Extended > Locked). they will still be selectable, but at least it will be impossible to manipulate them.
