How do I lock the size and shape of items in a student template?

Teachers can lock the size and shape of items in the Creative Canvas, while still allowing moving for labels, images, videos, and shapes. This option makes sorting and dragging activities easier for learners!

To lock the size of an item, tap the [...] button and select Lock. You can choose to Lock All (size, shape, and position of the item) or Lock Size.

Lock All will lock the item in place on the Creative Canvas. This is excellent for background images and objects that students don’t need to move.

Lock Size will lock the size and shape of the item. This will allow students to move items on the Creative Canvas without accidentally resizing the item!

If you need to unlock the item to move it, just tap the [...] button and select Unlock.

Tip: Keyboard shortcut Command (or Alt) + Shift + M will Lock Size. Command (or Alt) + Shift + L will Lock All (size, shape, and position of the item).

Note: Users on mobile devices using the Seesaw Class app will need to update to version 7.6 to access this feature.
