Password protect objects

Is there a way to password protect objects, pattern templates, or layers in InDesign?
We have to realize the following: we have created a layout for a customer in which he wants to change the text himself in 3 places with InDesign, because there are always year-specific templates.
But now he should not be able to change the layout or the images.
Therefore we would like to lock areas.
Is this possible in InDesign or is there an extension for this?

Thanks, Dietmar

Hallo Dietmar,

möglicherweise kann so etwas über einen InCopy-Workflow realisiert werden.

Dabei werden Textabschnitte aus- oder eingecheckt. Die InDesign-Datei selbst wird dabei nicht weitergegeben.

Nur Textabschnitte, die mit InCopy weiterbearbeitet werden können.

Hallo Uwe,

danke, werde es mal so versuchen.

Wäre aber mal ein Gedanke für InDesign, ob man sowas nicht einbinden kann.

Gruß Dietmar
