WISH: Trimming with locked objects

Not visited in a while (tied up with other stuff) but as a wish for V6, would it be possible to allow trimming with locked objects? Workflow something like: Allow post-selection only of locked items as trimming objects; don’t allow the locked objects themselves to be trimmed, only act as the cutter.

This would make life simple when trimming to boundaries inherited from legacy data without risking the loss of the legacy stuff itself.


Nice idea, could help with workflow. The “easy” workaround of course is to throw your trim curves on a different layer first. hit trim command, select those curves, then lock the layer they’re on. Trim away the curves on unlocked layers.
