    Hello

    I have created a template. The template is to be used by novice Lectora users to create lessons. These people will simply need to fill various text fields, stay away from the file itself and not press ctrl-Z too often when they make a mistake.

    Is there some way of protecting the various components of the title so that they do not destroy the template or waste time? Of course they will be working on copies of the template etc. etc.

    Any suggestions? I was hoping that Lectora would have some built-ins but I have not been able to discover anything.

    Thanks

    One option for it might be using Library Objects. Offcourse an unexperienced user could change and demolish things, but as it is a Library Object you can easily reset those to their defaults… Would have to test it though. And offcourse you can simply lock elements….

    Thank you Math. I will investigate Library Objects. But you also said something interesting. You suggested locking elements, but I thought that was only for size and position… Content is still vulnerable…

    Cheers and thanks

    True indeed, size and position. Content still vulnerable. You could add a allmost empty .png ( small blocks in the corners to cover the whole screen ) so all elements below it are not easy selectable… Still remains vulnerable but not easy to select anymore, thus making it harder for non-experienced developers to change something unwanted…
