Sketch lock fails

Locked or locked groups and nested groups are still populated by objs in Skatter.
Why is this not ignored for edit like in SU?

Why should they be ignored?

Just a small issue but I expected that a locked entity might ignore
being selected for the initial population.
Just a work around for selecting just where to Skatter.

Skatter is not modifying geometry, it uses the surface as a guide.
So I think now it’s consistent with Sketchup’s behaviour, as you can use locked geometry for inference, etc.

If you want some geometry to be ignored by Skatter, you need to hide it.
You can hide it only when you create your Skatter setup, and unhide it afterwards.

or you can define that object as an exclude area…
