6. Housekeeping > 53. Sidestep Formatting Restrictions

Sidestep Formatting Restrictions

Formatting protection can help keep documents rigidly consistent, but sometimes you gotta break the rules.

Word 2003 introduced formatting restrictions as a way to restrict the kinds of formatting users can apply to a document. To activate formatting protection, select ToolsProtect Document. In the Protect Document Task Pane, shown in Figure 6-5, you can specify which types of editing and formatting restrictions to enforce.

When you click the “Yes, Start Enforcing Protection” button, you can optionally supply a password. As you’re about to see, including a password is fairly useless, but it may keep some users from futzing with the formatting.
