    I'm using numbers to create my invoices.
    Using sheets/tables to create the Customer information section 2 columns and a few rows for their Name, Address, Email, Etc
    Then I use the invoice table chart to put their products and a service charge on there as well.

    It works out perfectly...however I just noticed that when I export as PDF to email my customers their invoice/receipt the PDF lines are completely editable.
    Giving me a very uneasy feeling should a customer want to make adjustments and cause a concern over something that they changed on the invoice.

    So it is possible to lock those fields when exporting as a PDF or is it just by default that way?

    They would be able to edit in anyway, by using PDF Editor.

    There should be export settings to disable actions in the exported PDF, so it wouldn't be "live".

    Gotcha, yeah Im having a tough time locating any sort of functions within the document itself to really secure those fields.

    Only password protection for printing is the only option for security when exporting.
