Enabling spell check on a protected 365 word doc without the password

1. How do you enable the spell checking function on a protected 365 word document, when you don't have the password. 

2. How to you copy the entire protected word document details and copy into a blank 365 word document?

Which type of protection is this?


For a document with "Filling in forms" protection, for example, you can insert the content into a new blank document using the Insert File dialog box and the content will be fully editable in the target document. (To open the Insert File dialog box, click Insert > Object > Text from File.)


On the other hand, if the document requires a password for opening and/or editing, you can't make any changes to it. This is a much stronger type of protection.
