locking binder

Is there a way to lock the binder ? I’d like to look at documents in the quick look pane but NOT have them show up in the editing pain. Thanks

Locking the editor (View > Editor > Lock in Place) prevents binder clicks from affecting it.

If I lock multiple documents in the editor and then click on a document in the binder to view it with quick looks the editor jumps the that document. Is there a way around that?

You don’t need to lock the pane to do this. You can just drag the item from the binder and drop it on the Quick Reference icon in the toolbar. This will not affect the editor.

All the best,
