In short I have a document template that allows users to add pre defined contentcontrols and these are locked so that they cannot be edited. However if the user drags the contentcontrol it copies the content control. this is unwanted.

How can I prevent the drag/copying of contentcontrols?

TIA

Sorry, I missed your comment.

I have in the meantime devised my own work around.

What I have done is allowed the deletion but I am trapping the delete event and if it is the contentcontrol that is selected, I don't let the delete happen.
