I've chosen to play a Survivor in Divine Divinity. I noticed that one of the starting skills was "Lockpick" which I've always found useful to have from the start.

The problem is, I don't actually know how to pick a lock! I've selected the skill while standing next to the locked item, I've selected the skill and then selected the locked item, and a myriad of other attempts. So far, nothing has worked.

How do I pick those pesky locks?

Maybe you need a lockpick? –  kotekzot Jul 12 '12 at 21:20

To be able to use the lock pick skill you need to have lock picks in your inventory. To obtain lock picks you will have to explore the world, or trade with merchants. If you have a lock pick in your inventory, make the lock pick skill your active skill, and then right-click. Your mouse cursor will change into a rotating key. Now select the door or container you wish to lock pick, and if your lock pick skills are good enough, the door or container will be opened when you left-click on it. Each lock pick attempt will remove a lock pick from your inventory. To cancel the lock picking, right-click.
