Locking Events in Elements 8


Page 121 in the Cubase Elements 8 manual states, “If you want to make sure that you do not edit or move an event by accident, you can lock it.” and “To lock events, select them and select Edit > Lock.”. The ‘Lock’ command is not present in my ‘Edit’ drop-down menu with or without an even selected. Is anyone else having the same issue? Does anyone have a solution? Thanks in advance.


It should appear as Lock… or use the Context Menu; i.e. right mouse click Edit > Lock… Or simply press Ctrl+Shift+L to lock (a second time to call up the dialog) and Ctrl+Shift+U to unlock.

Well actually, locking is not available in Elements 8, so that manual entry should not be in there. (Sorry to be the bearer of bad news)

No such Lock! I wish I wish I wish…
