    Protected forms (Word XP)

    I have a form with 2 sections one of which is protected. I want to be able to use the envelope feature in Tools but it is unavailable. Microsoft indicate on TechNet that this is by design. Is there a workaround so I don't have to unprotect the entire form?

    Re: Protected forms (Word XP)

    I dont' think there is a way to use features that are made inactive when a document is protected. The workaround is to unprotect the document, use the feature, & then reprotect the document without resetting the fields. For an example of this method with spellchecking, see How to enable the spellchecker in a protected document.

    I would think that you would need a similar method if you wanted to use any "disabled" feature.
