Reverse "Unlock in drawing" command

When I first created my surface model, any point I moved would snap back to its original position like a rubber band.  I had to do some edits so I unlocked this by .... Survey Tab>My survey database>Survey Points>Points,  and then picked "Unlock In Drawing".  This command unlocked All points in the drawing so I could edit them.

 

 

 Now that I am done with my edits, how do I reverse this command globally, so as to get  ALL points locked again (so they snap back to their original position like a rubber band if moved, like before) ??

This depends on where you want to points to live.

 

If they belong in the Survey database, you will need to create a Survey Import Event. When you told it to Unlock in Drawing, that disconnected the drawing-based version of the points from their Survey database counterpart. You moved things around, but the Survey database has not updated. Hence the need for the import event.

 

If you want the points to be drawing-based and not tied to the survey database, just leave them be, but on the Prospector tab right click Points and select Select. Move to the drawing screen, right click and select Lock Points.
