You can also lock objects so they cannot be moved or modified. This prevents people from inadvertently destroying your layout.

With the object you want to lock selected, choose Object > Lock Position. A small padlock appears if you try to move or modify the object .
The Padlock cursor indicates that the Lock Position command has been applied.
To unlock objects:
Choose Object > Unlock All on Spread. This unlocks the objects and leaves them selected on the page.
An object that is locked and that has also been selected.
Deselect the preference Prevent Selection of Locked Objects to be able to select locked objects.
