I have a board with 420 modules on it, and there are some on the
backside as well. When positioning modules with "move" I often end up
moving modules that I don't want to move, then if you press escape it
aborts the move start.
I don't like this. I have been thinking for a week about possible
A) Locking a layer so any modules on it cannot be moved.
B) Any layer which is not visible will be unresponsive to 'M' hotkey
C) Using the module's "lock" flag to ignore a 'M' or move command.
For the time being I have modified the pcbnew code to implement C).
I will use that for a while and see how friendly this is.
Until then, if there is wide immediate consensus that this is an
enhancement worth keeping, I would check in these changes sooner.
