Couldn't find anything in forum or help. Just wondering if there is anyway you can lock an object (meaning anything you draw or say an inserted image) to a fixed position or co-ordinates in a drawing to prevent moving it accidentally. I'm sure it is simple....bit like me:-)

Found it! Modes and select Lock X, Lock Y and Lock Z. I was getting sick of trying to scale and move things and accidentally moving the background image instead.

Actually, that doesn't help much. Locked it's position and everything else. Is there a work around or some way of locking just one thing?

One way is to put it on a new layer and lock the layer, unlock if you wish to move or alter it.
