Preventing unwanted changes
Explanation
You can protect a form from unwanted changes by assigning a password to it. When
you protect a document, you can specify which parts of it can be modified by selected
users. Use the Restrict Formatting and Editing task pane, shown in Exhibit 4-8, to
protect a document with a password and to specify sections that can be modified by
selected users.
To protect a form by using the Restrict Formatting and Editing pane:
1 On the Review tab, click Restrict Editing to open the Restrict Formatting and
Editing pane.
2 Under Editing restrictions, check “Allow only this type of editing in the
document.” Then select “Filling in forms.”
3 Under Start enforcement, click Yes, Start Enforcing Protection to open the Start
Enforcing Protection dialog box.
4 In the “Enter new password (optional)” box, type a password. Type the same
password in the “Reenter password to confirm” box.
5 Click OK.
Note: Passwords are case-sensitive. Also, you must remember your password because
forgotten ones cannot be retrieved.
