I have been generating spreadsheets with protected cells and the sheet tab Lock icon has disappeared.

Some people don't like it ... see link.
I would love to see the padlock again. Couldn't add an option for active or not. So those who don't want it could turn it off and those who want it could leave it on.

I would be happy to know if I could help.
