We have a problem while editing MS Word that only user that last opened document for edit can save his/her entry.
User 1 opens document for edit, user 2 after her and user 3 after him. User 2 sees that user 1 is editing document, user 3 sees that users 1 and 2 are editing. But when users save their entries, only entry from last user 3 in this case are visible.

Versioning is enabled.

I should note that this happens in library where we added our template word document with quick parts that are connected with library columns.


Found solution.
Problem was that no matter if we activated versioning, only last user's entry would be saved. So we found out we have to lock a field for entry. Basically, user has to right click on field he wishes to use and choose Block Authors option.
