The Lock Drawing option is very useful but it needs to take in consideration not only the drawing tool themselves but also the drawings plotted by studies.
I have a study that plots 14 trendlines, extending yesterday's main interest areas into today's session. These trendlines are all horizontal and it has been quite painful when an erroneous mouse click move one of the lines out of its place.
As the Lock Drawing is right now, it only locks the selected drawing when, if applied to a study, all drawings should be locked since all are part of the same study.
It would be nice to have some sort of an option that allows to lock all drawings on a chart or lock all drawings within the same study.
As you can imagine, selecting 14 lines, one by one, to lock them, it's quite painful when you have 7 symbols using the same study.

Added three new keywords to block drawings - tl_lock, arw_lock, text_lock.
