Editable Only checkbox or another way

Is there a way to keep the 'Editable only' checkbox checked when hitting the 'ESC' key?  Basically I have the ARCH.rvt link on a workset (and the Grid Lines on another) and I always keep those worksets Not Editable. However I dont even want to be able to select them objects on those worksets. Thats why I like that 'Editable Only' checkbox, but it keeps going unchecked!


thoughts? suggestions?

I create a Design Option when setting up the project and place my revit links under that option (Usually titled Option 1). After you have the links under that option flip back to "Main Model" option and you will never be able to select your links without flipping over to the "Option 1" design option.
