It be cool in the new editor that you can lock the placeholder in place. You can edit it and everything but lock it to the spot we want it in permanently untill we unlock it. That would be cool.

William - awesome idea, thank you!
YES. Please. It's so easy to accidentally click and drag it.

Our current use is that the 1 placeholder we have is "fullscreen", meaning it takes up all the space. So if/when someone accidentally moves it, the content is cut off and you get ugly whitespace.

Just a simple checkbox in the 'Properties' tab: 'Lock Position'. That's all I ask.

Hey William,

Thanks for this. I have passed it on to our Apps team who will evaluate this for future Editor Releases!
