Is it possible to lock an active layer?
When I change tools,  Turbocad Pro v 16.2  goes to another layer all by itself.
This makes sense for Text and Dimensions but further it is very confusing.

Yes, but that only prevents selecting entities on that layer.  It does not prohibit new entities.

If you change to a tool in a different tool group the active layer switches to the last-set user default layer for that tool group.  For example, if you set a dim' tool to draw on "DIM" layer, the next time you use a dim' tool, TC automatically makes the "DIM" layer the active layer.
