Profiles can be locked or unlocked. When profiles are locked, the form maintains a relationship between the top and bottom profiles, and is limited in the way it can be manipulated. When profiles are unlocked, the form can be manipulated in any way.
NoteIf the work plane is vertical, the constrained profile relationship would be between the left and right.
With locked profiles, when you manipulate one profile, it affects the other, and therefore, the entire shape. For example, if the top profile is selected, and you lock it, all the profiles take on the shape of the top profile.
The following graphics display an unconstrained form that locks to the selected, bottom (square) profile.

With unconstrained profiles, the profile edge or vertex can be manipulated.
