Timers belonging to a group are either all locked or unlocked.
Locking timers - keyboard shortcuts:
M: Prevents the active timer (dotted outline) from being moved with the mouse. Holding the shift key down while pressing M prevents all timers from being moved with the mouse. Stands for Mouse lock.
F: Prevents the active timer being adjusted using the mouse or the keyboard . Holding the shift key down while pressing F prevents all timers from being moved with the mouse or the keyboard. Stands for Full lock.
For both these options; if Allow keyboard unlocking is checked, timers will toggle their locked state except when the shift key is down, in which case it will only 'unlock all' when all are locked and Allow keyboard unlocking is checked. Otherwise it will lock all timers.
Ctrl+Alt+K: Toggles the menu item: Allow keyboard unlocking. You may need this if you try to shut the program down when there are unexpired timers and all timers are locked.
Ctrl+Alt+U: Removes all locks regardless of the state of allow 'Allow keyboard unlocking'. This might sound contradictory but locking is to prevent tiny hands and little paws from inadvertently unlocking or closing the program, it isn't a full blown security measure. Ctrl+Alt+U is quite difficult to do by accident.
Fully locked timers will not be deleted when Options>Auto>Delete spent is checked.
