Is there a way to lock the location of chosen vertices?

Hello,

Let’s say you have quite a dense mesh and you want to move lots of vertices around BUT you want some key vertices to stay exactly where they are - the trouble is, it is hard to see which are the ones you don;t want to move. Is there a way to LOCK the position of vertices?

Thanks

The only way to do it (okay there’s more but the only sane way) is to hide them. Make a vertex group of them first if you will be hiding them again and again so as to make selecting them a one click process.
