Default Selections

I've got quite a simple question - I've set up my image planes - though not sure I've done it completely right. I want to make them so I can't select them whilst I'm modelling. Does anyone know the way??

Thanks in advance!

Helen

did you use the built-in ImagePlanes? or did you make poly planes and texture them with your ref images?

with the built-in ones, you will only be able to select the planes in the perspective view if i recall.

with the poly plane way, make a new layer, add the planes, and set it to 'reference'. then you can't select them at all.

I was using the built in image planes - but I've changed it now after your suggestion, thanks for your help.
