Default Editable Organisation Charts in a protected document

I have a word document which i want to allow certain sections to be editable,
this i can do by un-ticking selected sections and protecting......this works
ok. I now what to add an organisation chart which is editable when the
document is protected, if i put a section break before and after the chart
and unselect this section from protection, when i protect the document i
can't edit the Org Chart.

What am i doing wrong

Please help

The problem is that organisation charts in the most recent versions of Word are
created using the Office Drawing tools, and reside in the documents "drawing
layer". And this layer is totally locked out in a protected document. No chance.

Closest you could get would be creating it in an outside document then
copy/paste the finished chart into an unprotected section.
