How do you "lock" indicators in NT7 so you can't delete them?

How do you "lock" indicators in NT7 so you can't delete them? Right now if I accidentally click on my Pivot Line or my S1 line, etc, it "activates" it and I can then accidentallly delete it.

NT 6.5 indicators couldn't be "grabbed" on the chart.

What am I missing?

Unfortunately, you'll have to be careful where you click. It's happened to me as well.

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

I posted this same question on the NT7 support forum and got an interesting answer back from NT Josh. I've pasted it below. I guess that this can be fixed with a setting change.

Quote from NT Josh:
Selectable items is a new thing in NT7. If you do not want this you can bring up the Chart Properties and then set the "Allow selection..." parameter to false.
