I am using Microsoft Word 2016 on Windows 8.1.

I would like to lock the text of a document against editing, but allow users to change the font to whatever they want (or pre-set styles if 'anything they want' isn't possible), so they can pick whatever is most readable for them.

I can see that Restricted Editing has some options for styles, but I can't see an easy way to allow changing of styles but not content.


That would require a macro either embedded in the document or in an attached template. The macro would control what was allowed to be done.
