30.12.8 Setting Other Text Properties

The Special Properties menu lets you add or remove three other useful text properties: read-only, invisible and intangible. The intangible property disallows moving point within the text, the invisible text property hides text from display, and the read-only property disallows alteration of the text.

Each of these special properties has a menu item to add it to the region. The last menu item, ‘Remove Special’, removes all of these special properties from the text in the region.

Currently, the invisible and intangible properties are not saved in the text/enriched format. The read-only property is saved, but it is not a standard part of the text/enriched format, so other editors may not respect it.
