Re: [PATCH] Locked modules locked in block operations


Good point. However, sometimes it might be used also for moving footprints
within a board. In that case there may be things that should not be moved.
Maybe another checkbox (include locked modules) could be added to the dialog
that comes up after block move, for example. It's not coming up for flip
block, though.
