Layer locking and move selection

Hey everyone, I just wanted to post about my experience with PyxelEdit so far.

I absolutely love this tool, definitely the best one I've worked with so far!

I have a couple of common issues from using the editor which would be great as new features:

I often find myself accidentally drawing on the wrong layer; it would be really great to have the facility to lock layers to prevent this!

I also find I often want to shift a selection around quickly, and unless there's something I'm missing so far the way you do this is by selecting, cutting and then pasting, which seems a little counterintuitive - it would be great to just be able to move what I've selected without the extra steps.

  • select what you want, hold control, and drag.
  • hold control and alt and drag to quickly copy and move selection

  • "I often find myself accidentally drawing on the wrong layer; it would be really great to have the facility to lock layers to prevent this!"

    Yes it is really very annoying. It would be good to add an additional icon with a padlock next to the layers link icons, or near the eye icon.
    It was also necessary to have the option of displaying a message in the case of the blocked value "do you want to paste pixels on the blocked layer?" "Yes" <> not "
