How to lock/unlock a slide for editing in Zoho Show?

Lock and Unlock a Slide

Lock a slide to protect it from being edited, modified, or deleted by users with whom you have shared your presentation. A locked slide can only be opened and viewed by other shared collaborators.
There are two methods to lock or unlock a slide:
  • Navigate to Slides pane on the left, then right-click on the slide you want to lock and choose Lock Slide from the menu.
  • Select the FORMAT mode on the right, choose Slide tab, and enable or disable the Lock Slide button at the bottom of the pane.
