comment Illustrator: locking a single object – what's the quickest/most efficient way to re-unlock only that object again?
In the case of a small number of multiple objects (say 5 out of 250), it might also help to do a Save Selection, and then choose that saved selection after going through the above steps.

comment Restore Photoshop Text Layer Name Auto-Updating?
Obviously I could recreate the layer, but that is not an ideal solution. Especially with a layer containing more than just plain text on a layer. I'm curious how one would script this process, and for those of us with zero scripting skills, it's not so easy.

comment Can one create a scalable brush in Photoshop?
I think the question is about lossless scalable brushes. If so, the only solution I am aware of is to use a Custom Shape (a vector object) instead of a brush.

comment How to extract PNGs from Adobe Illustrator file
For a non-Illustrator user, this is probably the best solution. And I agree with the earlier comment that you should find another designer willing to send you files you can actually work with.

comment Change Illustrator's save method to not have -01 extension?
At least for PNG files, the 01 suffix is in reference to the artboards, so by naming artboards there is a bit of a workaround.
