In FM, a layer is an attribute of the object, not of the map. So a layer
cant be 'locked' per se, as its not an overlay that can be

To change the object's layer, right click on it and select 'change layer'
from the pop-up menu. Also, whats the exact build you're using? Are you
using the latest one? (8.10f) Which 'building' are you using? The smart
building tool, or the random building tool (which is really a script).

"Map - Display Properties" from the menu. You can select from several
anti-aliasing modes (draft, fast, good, highest). You can see a
description of which mode does what by searching for 'anti-alias' in the
help file.
