edit header in restricted template RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a template that is restricted to edit form fields only. It also has a header with form fields however in order to edit the header a user has to un-protect the document in order to get . This is nothing but trouble.

    Is there a way to edit a header without having to un-protect the document?

  • Hi John,

    Based on what I have tried, if the document is restricted to form controls only, you can't get to the Header area, even from an unrestricted Section that has the Header unlinked from the restricted Section.  Thus a table in the Header will have the same issue.

  • AFAIK that is not possible unless ... you included some mangaged code in the template and the user had to select a button that unlocked the form, placed them into the header area, allowing them to make the change, and then locked the form again.

    Not perfect and there's probably holes. :-)

    Thanks, Rich,

    What about having a table repeat at the top of each page?
