I created a Word template with fields to be filled in. I set "Restricted Edit" to #2 Editing restrictions to Filling out Forms. (Fields) . I save as a template. When I open the template the Restricted Edit window pane opens up on the right side of screen.. The only way I have found to close this side pane is to select Review from the top menu, and then select  the Restrict Editing button.  I would like to find a way to prevent it from appearing in the first place. If that not possible does anyone have a Macro that will automatically close that side bar pane> .

Many thanks community
