I have a lot of people here at my work always asking me when they should pin things, versus when they should lock things and I can't always give them a general answer to that question.  Anyone want to share their best practices on when to pin and when to lock?

 Thanks.

Its difficult to say, but I use this:

I use pin on the grid.

If you change the length of a wall, it will expand to both sides. I use the pin if I need the wall to expand one way.

Use pin if the object must not move.Use Lock when to objects needs to be moved together.

Hope it helpes
