Raster image (JPG) on LOCKED layer, still selectable.

I placed my raster image (JPG) on locked layer "UNDERLAY" for tracing. Besides the fact that DRAWORDER is unreliable (I can work around that) I need to be able to lock the image so I can "Pick" entities without selecting the underlying raster JPG.

I can afford to upgrade to -14 (I'm using -11-Pro) once I get paid for this drawing package, but I must turn in the completed package first.

Is there a way to lock my JPG image so I can draw on top of it and trace the image ? I've locked the layer, but that doesn't seem to help.

Dear progeCAD Customer,

we were not able to reproduce the reported issue. Could you please send us a sample copy of the created document, containing the mentioned image, to directly investigate it? Selecting the eTransmit option, in the progeCAD File menu, you create the zip format archive, containing all the elements composing the current document.

Please forward it to the support@progecad.com email address, together with the complete list of steps to follow, to reproduce the reported unexpected behavior.

As an alternative solution, to achieve the desired result, we suggest you to access the progeCAD Image menu, where to select the Display Image Frame option. Be sure to turn it oFf: in the Command line, write F and press <Enter>.

We look forward to receiving your feedback, together with the required data. Thank you.

Best regards
