Locked objects

Is there a way to use a locked object as a cplane reference. I want to set a cplane to a surface on a locked object but it appears to be unselectable for that purpose.


Hmmm- yeah… this suggests a sort of semi-locked state where objects are ‘locked for editing’… but available as a reference. We have the SnapToLocked toggle as a sort of step in this direction. It could get complicated…


I want the objects locked so they won’t be accidentally moved but I still need to refer to them when modelling around them for example.
