ProtectionType.AllowOnlyRevisions doesent seem to be working

I set the document protection to ProtectionType.AllowOnlyRevisions but when I bring up the document in Word 2007 I can edit the document all day and there are no revision marks but ProtectionType.ReadOnly works fine. Is there something special I am supposed to do to the document to activate this?

Hi
Thanks for your inquiry. I checked this and it seems that all works fine. I think that you should also enable TrackRevisions before protecting. See the following code:

doc.TrackRevisions = true;
doc.Protect(ProtectionType.AllowOnlyRevisions);

This protection type allows you to edit document, but you can’t accept changes in the document.
I think that we should automatically enable TrackRevisions when protection type is AllowOnlyRevisions. So I created new issue #5515 in our defect database. I will notify you as soon as this is done.
Best regards.

This worked, thank you

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 5515) have been fixed in this update.
Setting to AllowOnlyRevisions turn TrackChanges on. Setting it to another value turns it off. Like in MS Word.
