Locked or Hidden

Locked or Hidden Detector (LorH) scans your documents for art objects that are locked or hidden. Install the LorH plugin to prevent expensive mishaps from accidentally locked or hidden art objects!


Documents will be automatically scanned each time they are opened.

LorH will report if locked objects are found in unlocked layers, or if hidden objects are found in visible layers.

You can also scan manually by choosing the menu item Object > Locked or Hidden Detector…


Here you can choose whether to automatically scan all documents as they are opened. These preferences will be saved and re-used until you change them.

The Preferences dialog can be found with the menu item Illustrator > Preferences > Graffix Plugins > Locked or Hidden Detector.. (Mac) or Edit > Preferences > Graffix Plugins > Locked or Hidden Detector.. (Windows).
