Usually when you lock the selection and click on Clear. The locked selection stay selected.

You can also set a trigger to automatically lock a field when the user opens the document.

As scott-phl said, you can set a trigger to do this.  There is also another way.

Try this.

1. Clear all selections

2. Make the selections you want

3. Using the drop down under the 'Clear' button, select 'Set Clear State'

Now, whenever the user hits the clear button the selections you made will automatically be applied

Just lock it again by trigger if the user unlocks it...

Document Properties --> Field Event Trigger --> choose the field(s) --> OnUnlock --> Action: Lock Field.
