One other thing is that if you make a file read only. You can convert it back to an editable document by doing a Save As and selecting .doc or .docx.

One related issue I used to have with Word .docx files was conversion to Adobe PDF. Sometimes images used to jump to different positions or pages, and sometimes text would jump. If you are doing a large file for a book, say, that is no fun, because you have to go through the entire printed proof and search for these errors.

By accidentally I found a solution, which is to download the free PDF maker add-on from Microsoft Downloads Website. Since I have used that I never had any image or anything jump or move.

There is one thing with that, which is that Word cannot open those PDFs. It can make them but cannot open them. They open with Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat or any bother generic PDF reader.

I am mentioning this because I endured months and sleepless night with large book files trying to upload them on Print On Demand equipment. Eventually I discovered these solutions. If I can save someone else the headache, that would be great.
