Modifying Template

I received a template from one of my users and they would like to make some modifications to the template. I tried to make changes to the template but I am unable to do so. How do you modify a template?  Test.docx

This is a form. Go to the Developer tab in Word and then click the Restrict Editing button in the Protect section. After clicking Restrict Editing, you will see a Task Pane appear on the right-side of the document. Click the Stop Protection button in this pane to allow editing of this form.

There are instructions for Word 2010.

What version of Word are you using? If your using 2007, Go to the REVIEW tba and click on Resrcit Editing. You can set your ability to edit from there.

Instructions to do this from Word 2007:

Go to Developer tab > Protect Document button in the Protect section > select Restrict Formatting and Editing > from the Task Pane that appears on the right-side of the document, click on the Stop Protection button near the bottom of that pane. You will be able to edit the document afterward.

To enable the Developer tab in Word 2007:

Go to the Office icon in the upper-right corner > Word Options > from the Popular section (left-side button) check the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon checkbox (right-side panel) > OK.

To enable the Developer tab in Word 2010:

Go to File > Options > Customize Ribbon > make sure the Developer checkbox is ticked in the Main Tabs view like the picture below:

 Enabled Developer tab in Word 2010.
