Let's take a look at a few of the things that can go wrong with the Word forms…saved as templates, and what you'll hear from users when you have those issues.…For example, you might have users tell you that they can delete labels, or…they'll just send forms back where the labels are deleted.…Another possibility is that users will tell you, I got this form but when I go…to click to enter data it won't let me change anything.…Both of these possibilities are permissions issues.…They're issues created because we restricted the editing in the wrong way or not at all.…
So let's go take a look at a document that was created from our current template…and as soon as I go in and I see that this insertion point is flashing up here,…I know I have a problem, because the user shouldn't be able ever to select up…here, because if they can select they can make mistakes too.…I didn't protect this form before I saved it as a template the last time.…So I need to go open the form so that I can correct that.…
