Document Protection


I am trying to protect a section of the document with read only option. This works well if I give it ProtectionType.ALLOW_ONLY_FORM_FIELDS but if it is given as ProtectionType.READ_ONLY it doesnt work.

Please suggest for the same. Find attached document with the example.

Also in Ms Word while protecting a document we can have formatting restrictions, editing restrictions and exceptions. Is this supported by Aspose.

Thanks in advance.


Hi Tarul,

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, there is no way to protect a particular section with ReadOnly protection type using Aspose.Words. Also, there is no way to protect a selected range using Aspose.Words. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. You will be notified as soon as protection of selected ranges is supported.

Best regards,

Hello Alexy,

I would like to be notified also when the support for unprotecting selected ranges is added to Aspose.Words.

Can you make that happen or is there something I need to do?

Thank You,

Thanks for your request. You will be notified as soon as it is supported through a post in this thread.

Best regards,

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