I have been working on creating a protected stationary in Word 2007. The challenge is to protect the section of your document which has your stationary, a company letterhead for example, so it cannot be tampered with, while allowing complete formatting for pasting text to the rest of the document. You can do this by making 2 sections to your document, the letterhead section and then the rest of the document. You would protect the Letterhead section while allowing everyone to edit the rest of the document.
Here is a method that I have discovered with step by step instructions below.
1 . First create your letterhead and paste it into the top of the document. Do not use headers since you probably only want your letterhead on the first page and you want normal margins for following pages. Then press the enter key to go to the next line of your document.
2 . Next in the Home menu on the Paragraph tab click "Show/Hide" (last icon on top right) to show your paragraph marks and hidden symbols. You will need this to keep track of your section breaks.
3 . Now go to the Page Layout menu and in the Page Setup tab, select Breaks and then click on Continuous. This creates a new section on the same page.
4 . Go to the Review menu and select Protect Document and click on Restrict Formatting and Editing.
5 . Put your cursor on the line with the Letterhead and then under item 2. Editing Restrictions select "Allow only this type of editing in the document:" and select "No changes (Read only) " from the drop down menu. This will lock your letterhead from editing.
6 . Move your cursor to the next section of your document (below the section break) and under "Exceptions (optional)" on the right hand side select "Changes: Everyone". This will allow everyone to edit the second part of your document.
7 . On the bottom right tab under item 3. Start enforcement, click "Yes Start Enforcing Protection".
8 . You may add a password (required to stop protecting) if you like.
9 . You can now paste text to your document in the area highlighted in yellow while your letterhead is protected from all changes.
