Restricting Editing and Forms RRS feed

  • Question

  • After developing a form in Microsoft Word with several rich text forms, check boxes, and calendar forms, I noticed that the text forms cannot be edited after "ticking" one of the check boxes. I tested this several ways after restricting it to "all forms". I intereste text into all of the text fields first, then ticked all of the check box questions. However when I start at the top and go question by question, there are several text forms that come first. I fill those out, but as son as I come to the first question that requires a check box to be ticked, the remaining text forms cannot be completed when the document is restricted.

    Please advise on how I can restrict the document from being edited, besides all forms - to allow any and all forms to be filled out in any order.

    Thank you.

  • Please describe exactly which text boxes and checkboxes you inserted into the document. There are more than two possibilities for both kinds of control and we have to know exactly which ones you're using.

    Which version of Word is this?
