Protecting a File

To protect a file, the author invokes the File > Tools > Protection > Protect command. This is only done once, then the menu item is disabled in the protected file.

Note: A user with unlimited rights to a protected file can unencrypt the file without prompting for confirmation with the PROTECT ENCRYPT REMOVE key-in.
Note: You can use the PROTECT NOPROTECT key-in to mark a file so that the encryption commands will not work. However, another user could encrypt the file by using the reverse key-in to clear the flag. This key-in is only intended to communicate the file owner's wishes to the user.
