Oh well, as Homer Simpson would say:
What about a drop-down menu there?
The icon would display an open lock - or nothing at all. When clicked,
a drop down contest menu with check itens for each "locking" option
would appear. If any of the locking options would be picked, the icon
would ebcome a locked bolt. Clicking on it, would make the drop-down
menu to show up revealing the state of the layer.
This UI could even be used to the linked state as well, therefore
resoving the space problem.
I do not have the time to elaborate a mock up on this, so I will
explain the idea again, with a different wording:
On left-clicking on the layer-tree, where the current "linked" icon
for each layer is placed, a drop-down menu would be displayed.
This menu would contain 4 itens which could each be checked or
If either of these get checked, an apropriate icon (which could be
always the same) would displayed in that place.
IMHO, the idea of other specific contest menus on the layers tree may
be needed anyway when layer grouping is included - There will simply
be more options than the current UI can deal with.
