Locking the positions of text and artwork on a shape

I have a composite made up of text and artwork which I want to burn repeatedly on projects. Is there any way to lock the positions of all parts. When I try to position the project on the wood it only moves in parts and I have to reposition all parts again and again. There must be some locking command to help in this procedure.

There isn’t.

Just select all the parts before moving as a group.


In your graphics program you can put a box around them and then in the GFUI set the box to ignore - it’ll “merge” everything within the box as far as moving parts.

If you created it within the GFUI, @eflyguy’s suggestion of “select all” or drag a box around everything you want will work as well.


Just tried it and it will make my positioning very easy. Thanks so much for that simple fix.


Thanks for the answer @eflyguy, that’s right. I’m going to close this thread - if the problem reoccurs, go ahead and post a new topic. Thanks for letting us know about this!
