Windows 7: Keep formatting in protected word templates 2010

Keep formatting in protected word templates 2010

Hi all,

I need to protect a template that contains parts, that should be edited eventhough there is protection activated. These fields should have a special formatting (font and size) which is missing after protecting the document.

How to fix this? Only possible with a macro? Tried to do it but couldn't make it work. Please help as soon as possible. This is urgent.

Dont get why this must be so complicated after it has been so nice before Office 2010.
