My problem is that my boss wants the letterhead protected/locked, appearing only on page one, without being anchored to the header at all, and without using forms (which disable editing of headers and footers). Is this possible?
As far as I can tell from researching on this site and many others, you either place the letterhead in the first page header and use the layout menu to make "first page different", or you absolute position the graphic behind text wherever it should appear on the page. Users could still select the graphic and accidentally delete it, and we are trying to avoid that.
I have also tried making it a watermark/background, but unless I'm missing something watermarks are also contained in the header.
