Rick,

Where should I go to lock the model? I would think there is an option to lock a model by setting a password into it. Thanks.

Use the "Archive" option. You can activate this, while in the input, from the "File" menu or use the "padlock" toolbar button.

HI Richard, I am using the 2019 version... and the padlock button isn't in the software. How can I block the model?

I'm working in a large pipeline model, with 6000 nodes aprox, so when a change a restraint or anything, the graphic model redraw the complete model and this takes 5-8 seconds for every change, and I have to change 2 parameters of a 3000 restraints, so you undersad that is a lot of time.

In 2018 version the padlock button was in the "reset and refresh" toolbar, I used to use this button a lot before.

Thanks

With the rewrite of the graphics for v.11, the padlock wasn't (or shouldn't be) needed any more. The graphics update only redraws what was changed. If you change a restraint, only that restraint should be redrawn.

If this isn't happening for you, please open an SR, send in your model, and a step by step workflow so we can reproduce the issue.
