Turn off the selection of locked items

Right now layers that are locked can still be selected. It would be useful if there was a feature to decide wether you need the locked items to be selectable or not. Sometimes this is just a background and shouldn’t be touched at all, or if you create a workshop for other users and you don’t want them to accidentally select something they cannot edit or shouldn’t touch

Agree with this feedback. I have a user story map that I’ve added a background to, which is locked. But if I accidentally select the background, I cannot select any of the items on top of the background, so I need to zoom all the way out, deselect the background, then I am able to select the items on top.
