User Interface Lock
Lock all edition capabilities of the user interface
For safety it's sometimes usefull to lock everything to avoid any risk of errors when running a show with Smode.
The global lock button enables to lock all edition capabilities of the user interface. It affects the whole "lock" column of the current document in the Element Tree as well as the lock column in the SmodeFilesView.
Note that locking content leads to a slightly more optimized version of the composition as explained in Use optimisation tools to accelerate a composition.
