Using a locked template
When a user creates a document from a locked template, they can mouse-over the document content to see the red and yellow locking restrictions the template creator has set. The collaborator will see the red and yellow locks in the document. This will give them guidance as they edit the document.
The user can also go to View > Show locking restrictions to see all at once.
The simple locking feature is, as before, found in the layers pane. This feature allows any collaborator on a document to fully lock and unlock items in a document to prevent, for example, accidentally moving those objects. Please note that simple locking cannot be used on documents created from Advanced Template Locking templates, and that simple locking can not be converted to permanent locking. To permanently lock items in a template, use Advanced Template Locking as described above.
