make table columns read-only


6 answers

Maybe have the table on a separate page with a link to it and have the page locked on editing. Not sure columns can be locked.  Comala work flows add might help



Hi Darren

Thanks much for the quick reply.

So we must solve this with a plug-in? Although the table maker does look good.

Kind Regards


Is it about restricting editing of whole table or - if I get it right - about restricting for one column, while still being able to editing the other?

Not the cleanest, and not foolproof, but it will keep the honest people honest.

  1. Add a div macro to each cell you want copy protected.
  2. Set the Class to noselect.
  3. Cut the text from that cell and paste it into the body of the div macro.
  4. Add a CSS Stylesheet macro with the following in the body (you could instead add this to Look and feel --> CSS):

    .noselect {
        -webkit-touch-callout: none;
        -webkit-user-select: none;
        -khtml-user-select: none;
        -moz-user-select: none;
        -ms-user-select: none;
        user-select: none;
