    My apologies if this question has already been asked, but I have made a powerpoint presentation that includes animated elements. I want to be able to sell it. How can I save it so that it can be used by others but not edited?

    Help prevent changes to a final version of a file

    Applies To: Excel for Office 365 Word for Office 365 PowerPoint for Office 365 Excel 2016 Word 2016 PowerPoint 2016 Excel 2013 Word 2013 PowerPoint 2013 Excel 2010 Word 2010 PowerPoint 2010 Excel 2007 Word 2007 PowerPoint 2007 Office 2010

    Use Mark as Final to make your Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file read-only. When you mark as final, typing, editing commands, proofing marks are disabled or turned off, and the file becomes read-only, and the Status property of the document is set to Final.

    Sounds great, but............


    The Mark as Final command is not a security feature. Anyone who receives an electronic copy of a file that has been marked as final can edit that file by removing the Mark as Final status from the file.

    If you want to encrypt a presentation with a password or restrict who can edit it, see Add or remove protection in your document, workbook, or presentation.
