    Restrict Editing - Forms and Text?

    Hi,

    I have a document with some legacy forms so I have restrict editing on so that those dropdowns work. The problem is that the text is not editable. I want to make it so that the drop downs work, but also so that a user can type/edit in the document. How do I do this?

    In restrict editing, I have the 2nd box checked and have selected "Filling in Forms". If that is wrong, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    I just answered my own question.

    If you insert a continuous break, you can control which sections are restricted! Very important to know this.

    Thanks,
