Editable

Editable
is an option for displayed objects, cells and notebooks which specifies whether their contents can be edited interactively using the front end.
  • Even with the setting Editable->False, the contents of an object can still be copied as a whole.
  • Setting Editable->False effectively allows you to "write protect" elements of notebooks.
Create a cell that cannot be edited interactively:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
 
Create a noneditable part of a cell:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
