Referenced Block remains Selectable on locked layer

When using Rhino 6, I insert a rhino file as a referenced/linked block and lock the layer the block can still be selected. Even if I place the block on a new layer and lock that layer I get the same issue. The only way I have found is to select the block and use the lock command. This did not happen in Rhino 5

Hello - are you using the reference or active layers?



Hello - thanks for the detail, I’ll see if I can reproduce it.

I see it, thanks. I’m just checking with the larger brains in case there is some ‘by-design’ aspect to this change but is feels like a bug to me.


Hi Chad,
Thank you for the procedure, details and images.
We were able to duplicate this and log the following bugs as a regression in Rhino 6 since it worked in Rhino 5.
RH-59294 Linked Block Parent Layer Does Not Lock Block

We will let you know when it is fixed.
Or you can register on the Youtrack system and watch the bug in progress.
