It can be a little too easy to move hotspots in Showcase. And if you're the type of person who like things to be precise and aligned, having your carefully-measured hotspots messed with can be frustrating.

The solution? Lock your hotspots!

This is a particularly useful solution if you've got lots of layers in your design, or for hotspots that rarely need to change or move (like logos or other images).

Here's how to lock a hotspot:

  1. Sign in to the web platform and open your presentation in the Editor

  2. Click on a hotspot to select it

  3. In the editing toolbar above your presentation, click the little padlock icon at the far left

  4. That's it! Nobody will be able to move or edit that hotspot until it's unlocked (by clicking the same button). They'll know it's locked at a glance because a padlock icon will appear beside the slide name when they click on it.

Note: if you're selecting multiple hotspots by dragging out a selection area, locked hotspots won't be included in the selection.
