All the document is protected after modify a mergefield


We are using Aspose Words for Java 10.6.0 for modifying mergefields.

For security reason we have protected mergefields in order to users can’t modify the entire document text. But when we modify one mergefield using Aspose, all the document is protected.

I attach two files, the original one (v1.0) and the modified one (v2.0)

Thanks in advance for your support

Thank you for additional information. I managed to reproduce it on my side. The problem occurs because Aspose.Words does not support protection of selected ranges. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. We will let you know once this feature is supported.
Best regards,


I’d like to know if there are any news about this feature, because it’s still a limitation we have.

Thanks so much for your support

Kind regards,


Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the issue is still pending for analysis. Once our developers analyze the issue, we will be able to provide you an estimate. Sorry for inconvenience.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-1067) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
