4.2 Editing Sealed Documents

This section covers the following topics:

4.2.1 About Editing Sealed Documents

If you have sufficient rights, as explained below, you can make changes (edit) sealed documents in the same way and for the same reasons that you would make changes to unsealed documents.

As a prerequisite to editing a sealed document, you need the Open right. See "About Rights". You will also need at least one edit right, as described below:

  • If you have been given the Edit right, you are able to edit a document as you would an unsealed document (unless other rights have been applied that restrict this). You may find that some application features have been restricted to increase document security.

  • If you have been given the Edit Tracked right, you are able to edit a document, but the track changes option is automatically invoked. (Applies only to Microsoft Word documents.)

  • If you have been given the Interact right, you are able to fill in form fields. If this is the only edit right you have been given, other types of edit are prevented.

  • If you have been given the Screen Capture right, you are able to take screen captures.

  • If you have been given the Program right, you are able to use macros that process or modify sealed content.

4.2.2 About Using the Clipboard while Editing Sealed Documents

If you have sufficient rights, as explained below, you can use the clipboard to move content from one document to another.

If you have been given the Edit right, you can use the clipboard to help you. However, your ability to paste information to another document is controlled by additional permissions set up on the server to which the sealed document is synchronized.

Depending on your permissions on the server:

  • You might be allowed to paste within the same sealed document, but to no other document.

  • You might be allowed to paste to a document of the same type, for example from one Microsoft Word document to another Microsoft Word document, but not from a Microsoft Word document to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

  • You might be allowed to paste anywhere you want, including to unsealed documents.

If you attempt to paste sealed content to an unauthorized destination, Oracle IRM Desktop displays a message explaining that you cannot.


Note:

Copying and pasting from sealed HTML is always disabled regardless of your rights and permissions.
