Editable

FilledSmallSquare Editable is an option for boxes, cells and notebooks which specifies whether their contents can be edited interactively using the front end.

FilledSmallSquare Even with the setting Editable->False, the contents of an object can still be copied as a whole.

FilledSmallSquare Editable is an option for InterpretationBox and TagBox, as well as for StyleBox.

FilledSmallSquare Setting Editable->False effectively allows you to "write protect" elements of notebooks.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.9.10 and Section 2.11.9.
