Locking Sketch GeometryWhen an entity is locked, it is drawn in dark green. User-created edges are unlocked by default. Projected Geometry on page 157 is locked by default.

Locking Sketch GeometryLocking a curve does not automatically lock its endpoints or vertices. When a curve is locked, it cannot be moved. In the previous image, the line is locked; however its endpoints are not. This reduces the edit operations you can perform on the curve and even on curves or points connected to it. In the previous example, you can extend the line in either direction, but you cannot move the position of the line or change its direction.

Locking geometry will not eliminate any inferred Sketch Constraints on page 169. You will not be able to edit entities in a way that would break those constraints.
