Lock PCB and make unselectable

I can see how to lock the PCB, but how do I lock it and make it unselectable?

I would like to click and drag a marquis around a group of components on the pcb, but it seems to just select the PCB when I try this with the PCB locked. To get around this I am moving the PCB out of the way, clicking and dragging around a group of components to select them, moving them, then replacing the PCB. Is there an easier way?


After dragging the marquis around the group of components, hold down the “ctrl key” and deselect the pcb. You can then copy and past or duplicate the group of selected components.

You can also click on View in the Menu bar and un-check Board Layer in the layer section of the menu. Then check it when you want the board to be visible again.
