Protecting Sections in OpenOffice.org Writer

Any section of a OpenOffice.org Writer text document can be protected against changes with a password.

 

Turning on protection

Select the text. Choose Insert ->Section -> Section, then under "Write protection" mark the "Protect" and "With password" check boxes. (If the section already exists: Format -> Sections.)

Enter and confirm a password of at least 5 characters.

Turning off protection

Choose Format -> Sections -> Section and under "Write protection" clear the "Protect" check box.

Enter the correct password.

 

Writer Password Recovery immediately removes this protection and allows you to set a new password.
