Is there a way to prevent the deletion of a section or paragraph?

Hi Julie,

If for example you mark that XML element with a certain attribute:

Code: Select all

<p outputclass="read-only">Oil should be changed every 6000 kilometers.</p>
you can set the element as read-only from the CSS:

Code: Select all

p[outputclass='read-only'] {
but the element will have read-only contents, you will still be able to delete it from the Outline.
If you want something more probably you can use our Java based API to implement an AuthorDocumentFilter: ... ilter.html

or with a schema aware editing handler: ... ndler.html
