Facilitator lock your content

There are three ways to facilitator-lock an object — from the context menu, from the toolbar, or by using a shortcut.

To facilitator-lock objects from the context menu:

  1. Right-click on a single object, or select multiple objects with Shift + click + drag and then right-click.

  2. Select Lock in the menu.

  3. Select Only facilitators can unlock from the submenu.

To facilitator-lock objects via the toolbar:

  1. Right-click on a single object, or select multiple objects with Shift + click + drag

  2. Click on the arrow icon next to the Lock icon in the toolbar.

  3. Select Facilitator lock in the list.

All the objects you lock using the icon in the toolbar will now be facilitator-locked until you unlock the object from the toolbar or context menu.

Notes:

  • You can select objects one by one by holding Shift and clicking. This will allow you to facilitator-lock specific objects at once.

  • The previous lock type used will be the default when locking from the toolbar. (Either facilitator lock or normal lock)

To facilitator-lock objects with the keyboard shortcut:

  1. Right-click on a single object, or select multiple objects with Shift + click + drag and then right-click.

  2. Press Shift + Command + L to lock and Shift + Command + S to facilitator lock.

Note: Some browser extensions block MURAL shortcuts. To use shortcuts in MURAL, you may need to disable some extensions.
