Locked objects get selected

Not sure why adobe changed the lock of an item. It used to work perfect to lock my background objects. Now, it I have background objects; they still get selected even if they are locked; it's such a huge inconvenience and waste of time to sort selected objects. Please fix or put back the lock object.

    There's an option under General preferences.
    Object editing - Prevent selection of locked objects.

    If you have it unticked, you will be able to select locked objects.

    Very much agree. The biggest issue for me with this is when using the black arrow and trying to drag a box over several items to select them. If I try to do this now over a locked object the locked object just gets selected instead of allowing me to drag a box. Really slowing me down.

    Please return to normal.
    Thank you.
