Notes:

  • You must have Security - Manage Locks permission to view and delete user locks; the initial Admin administrator automatically has this permission
  • If you want to display the resulting information in a more readable layout, you can resize the dialog and its columns
  • If an element is locked then connectors attached to it are also locked, so to unlock the connector you must unlock the element; however, under certain circumstances you can add new connectors to a locked element
