 Locking viewports

I am using ZWCAD 2010 professional.

Preamble:

Having completed my drawing (scale 1:1) 2D mode in model space, I proceed to tab over to Layout space and having established the number and orientation of my viewports, I then proceed to utilize each viewport for an express purpose, namely one for my general arrangement and the others for details scaled to suite my requirements.

Question:

I order to ensure no change to the viewports I need to lock them.
How do I go about doing this in ZWCAD?

Wilbri: If you click on the viewport and look under Properties > Other you'll see a line that reads Display locked.

Of course it helps to have Properties running and either opened or closed but docked to one side.

Tesla: Thank you for your assistance.
Problem solved.
Yes it's a good idea to keep my properties running and docked. I usually do this, although it does create a problem now and again as I use tool bars docked on either side of my drawing space. and I often allow my mouse pointer to stay over the docked properties resulting it to display when I do not require it.
A little practice and personal discipline required here that's all
