Locking guide lines in drawing.

I went through a lot of work to set up a drawing page with lots of guide
lines but now that I have that done I can't figure out how to lock them in
place so that they don't accidentally get moved around. (Which happens a
lot.)

So my question is:
Can guides be locked down?
If so, where do I learn more about it?
(I have searched the help and docs but couldn't find any answers.)

Thanks for everyone's time.

You need to learn about "layers". On the lower part of the edition window
you have some "tabs": "layout", which is selected by default, "controls",
"dimension lines". You can create more with a click on the layers bar and
set their properties with a couple of right clicks. And among those
properties there is the possibility to "lock" a layer. Objects created when
a layer is selected "belong" to that layer, so cut your guide lines, select
a different layer and paste them. Finally, lock that layer.
