FS#1762 - Modify // .... selection of entities on locked layer allowed

Not served with the degration to ‘Suggestion’ FS#1759.
Demanded closing FS#1759 & re-entered

Locking entities (by layer) to avoid selection,eg. nearby,very close by or on the same spot, does not have the intended influence.

Asumed wrong:
- Modify DI
- Modify B2
- Modify D3
- Modify MT
These 4 need a single entity to be selected and selection of a locked entity is allowed.(=questionable)
The action will allways leed to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)

Questionable:
- Modify RM
- Modify CH
- Modify RN
These 3 need a pair of entities.
RM: Selection of a locked limiting entity is allowed (=questionable), enity to trim not.(=correct)
The action will trim unlocked entities to the locked limiter.(=questionable)
CH & RN: Selection of a pair of entities is allowed.(=questionable)
Trimming if ‘trim’ is on will not occur because locked and leeds to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)
The creation of the bevel or rounding on an active locked layer will not occur because locked and leeds to ‘not allowed’.(=correct)
The creation, except for polyline segments (because locked themself), on an active unlocked layer will be done.(=correct)

Less severe but still questionable: (because these don’t necerally act on the locked entities themselves)
- Modify OF
- Modify OH
- Modify SS
OF: Selection of a locked base entity is allowed.(=questionable)
The preview is casted only if the active layer is unlocked.(=correct)
The creation is only done on an active unlocked layer.(=correct)
OH: Selection of a locked base entity is allowed.(=questionable)
Selection of point references from entities on locked layers is allowed.(=questionable)
The preview is casted only if the active layer is unlocked.(=correct)
The creation is only done on an active unlocked layer.(=correct)
SS: Selection of point references from entities on locked layers is allowed.(=questionable)
Strechting is only done for unlocked entities. (=correct)

Note that "locked" means not modifiable or read-only. Having limiting entities or original entities (e.g. for offsetting) on locked layers is very common and an important feature for many users.

Yes, as intended but selection is allowed so the locked nature has not always the intended purpose.
eg. a locked parrent can be selected when a unlocked child is addressed depending on the draworder.

Telegram style: locked means on locked layer
DI,B2,D3,MT should not select locked because the entity in question is the one for the action.
RM,SS select locked may have a purpose, the further functionality is found very correct.
CH,RN select locked have a questionable purpose and a dualality as results, trimming/creating depending the locked nature
OF,OH select locked may have a purpose but how to select the not locked child that may allready been modified.

It is a multi entry because the very mixed nature of results.
In my opinion the funcionality has to be thought over again for some of them.
