Restricting Formatting and Editing
At the bottom of the Formatting Restrictions dialog box are three checkboxes.
These are off by default; turn on any that meet your needs:
— Allow AutoFormat to override formatting restrictions. Usually you’ll
leave this off. But if you want AutoFormat to have the final say about
formatting, turn on this checkbox.
— Block Theme or Scheme switching. This prevents anyone reading the
document from changing its theme. So if you created the document with Word’s
