    Question How can I prevent text boxes & pics from being deleted

    We have some docs that are going through editing right now, and we're having problems with people deleting a paragraph without realizing the a text box or a pic was anchored to it and was deleted too. Is there a way to protect or lock pics and text boxes so they can't be accidentally deleted? I tried pasting the text box into a Picture Content Control box, but I that didn't work. We are using Office Pro 2010.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Once you've got the picture in the content control, click the properties button on the ribbon (right under Design Mode on the Developer Ribbon). Click the check box that says "Content Control cannot be deleted."

    Does this get you where you need to go?

    Best, Kim
