How do I lock the latest Quora Wiki edit so that it cannot be edited anymore?

How can I convert a PDF to Word?
There is no good way to use Microsoft Word to edit PDFs. Microsoft Word is used for authoring an original document not modifying a portable document. True Word can import some data from a PDF. That feature is useful when you are authoring a new document and wish to salvage data from a PDF to prevent time spent entering data. In that case it is best to import the PDF into a file by itself and strip it of formatting then copy and paste it into your pre-formatted document as Normal . Then you will proceed to make other formatting changes for headings section numbering etc. If you must edit a PDF directly your edits should be minor. Even in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro you are limited in how much editing you can do. Fix a misspelled word maybe replace a word here or there. If you try to rearrange a document or make edits that cause significant changes regarding allocated space you will not get what you expect. The way flows in a PDF is not always what you expect so shortening or lengthening paragraphs will give strange results oftentimes. PDF editors are not page layout programs. So if your edits are minor and you must edit the of an existing PDF get your hands on a PDF editor (not free). If you can get away with obscuring existing and s you just need good annotation capability. If you have a Mac you can use Preview to annotate or cut and paste graphics. The free Acrobat Reader allows some annotations too. You can use annotations to white-out a section of and put in new annotation to replace it. If you are careful it may not be that noticeable. You can white-out s to alter graphics. You can create a Frankenstein Monster of a document if you like using free PDF annotation software. But then youll ask yourself why you didn just make a whole new document in Microsoft Word something you could call your own.
How can I stop my questions on Quora from being edited?
To italic Brandon Colis italic user 45445889 the prolific and shy M Anonymous and italic Richard McAnus italic user 673139921 PRO TIP Anyone can edit any question. Questions are owned by themunity not by the original poster. If you edit your question to make it better you cannot stop Quora from reverting a question you later edited even if you yourself wrote the original question. Whether it is a bot or a live person who changes questions only Quora knows. You can however revert any question back to the version you want if Quora or someone else discards your edits. When I do this I like to include a reason. This may or may not work permanently and then you would need to repeat the steps. If this does not work you can always post a better question. Here is one of many reasons I have used in the past Dear Quora let get back to basics here OK? Your very own rules state that you want questions written in standard English and yet your bot (or an illiterate non-sentient human) changed the question back to its original form so it is grammatically INcorrect again even though I had fixed it. Please revert back to my version or at least something in standard English. Thank you. Sarah Madden a professional editor and writer for more years than most people on earth have been alive. italic horizontal-rule Granted it a little harsh and flies just under the BNBR bar but it gets the point across. Usually Quora gives up after a few attempts and allows the grammatically correct version to stay. If not I have reported Baby Brother Quora to Big Brother Quora for vandalism or harassment or whatever makes sense that day. Another huge italic thing to remember is that we italic do not own our questions. The Quoramunity owns all questions no matter who writes them. The question I originally answered was itself merged into a slightly different one. horizontal-rule Questions are owned by themunity. There is no setting to prevent anyone else from editing your questions. However once a question has settled in and has over 1 answers it is often (always?) locked by Quora even if there a typo. Then you have to report the question and hope someone at Quora will fix it. Sometimes they do correct typos so it worth the effort to report a problem.

Is it possible to lock a Word file in a usb so that it cannot be downloaded or forwarded?
No. If anything can read it that anything can make a copy of it. If you can't read it what good is it? Separately you can use DRM (Digital Rights Management) to make sure that only specific people can decode it in a DRM managed environment. And in those settings not allow it to be resaved in a decoded manner so that anyone else who gets the file bits won't be able to do anything with it.
