MS Word Document Protection - Accept/Reject buttons disabled from Review Tab

We need the ability to enforce restriction of editing specific sections only in an MS Word Document.

We are currently using the aspose Words method document.protect() with ProtectionType as “ALLOW_ONLY_FORM_FIELDS”, the document gets protected, and we are able to lock/restrict the sections for editing. However, this also results in the Accept/Reject buttons for Tracking changes in “Review” tab of MS Word getting disabled - This restricts users from accepting/rejecting changes even in the section which allows editing. As per business functionality, we need these options (accept/reject) to be enabled for our functionality.

Can you please suggest if there is any way to achieve the above? (To summarize: The need is to have the Accept/Reject button enabled while allowing editing only in specific sections/paragraphs in the document)


Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the behavior of MS Word and MS Word application does not support it when document is protected.

Could you please ZIP and attach your input and expected output documents? We will then provide you more information about your query.
