Default Save As a "Read-Only" Doc to Regular doc

Hi Everyone,
What I essentially need to do is to create a "Master" form that everyone can
use but won't be able to save on top of Master. so that's why I'm making the
form as "Read-Only" however I notice that if another user just Save As the
file to another name the "Read-Only" option still stay with the new doc, and
if I put "Password to Modify" that password still also stay with the new
document the user save as.

Is there a way to do this so that neither the "Read-Only" nor the "Password
to Modify" will stay with the new doc that another user do a save as?

thank you,
neon520

Hi Suzanne,

Thank you for your reply.
From what i have tried myself, the template file doesn't seem to work if it
doesn't stay in the correct directory (My Templates folder), which is likely
the case, because I will need to send the Template/Master to other people who
likely won't know how to add the template to "My Template" folder.

Is there any other to accompish this?

Thank you,
Neon520

You can put a template in any folder, and if folks double-click to "open"
it, they will get a new document.
