Why are my Quick Parts deletable and how can I change that?

Hello All,

I wrote a Word 2013 document and put some Quick Parts in it. I connected them to my SharePoint library.

The problem is that I am able to delete the Quick Parts. Users should fill out the document and shouldn't be able delete them by accident.

I have another document with Quick Parts where it isn't possible to delete them. So I guess its possible to solve my problem, just don't know how.

Any ideas that could help me?

Thanks!!

"Quick Parts" does not really describe which tools you are using.

It is possible to restrict editing so that only certain parts of a document can be edited.

You can put in Content Controls that cannot be deleted.

Both restrictions of editing and Content Controls are handled on the Developer Tab.
