I have a Word template in my SharePoint library where people have to fill out a document and the information are filled in the library columns. Here my problem:

Some fields are mandatory. But the QuickParts are deleteable. That means if someone deletes a mandatory QuickPart per accident he cannot save the document anymore.

How can I change the setting so its not possible for users to delete them? Thanks :)
