    Hi Everyone,


    I have received a Word document that appears to has some form fields included. In trying to simply select and highlight some text, but doing that in any part of the document move me to the form section. How do I remove this action to allow me to edit this document?

    thank you very much

    Hi Camper,

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge.

    To answer your query... Can you check to see if there is Form Protection on the document by going to Tools, Protection and Unprotect the document. If this is not the case, check to see if the Protect Button on the Forms Toolbar is in use. If it is, click on it to unprotect the document for editting.
    Regards,
    Rudi
