Hi,

Maybe there are better methods, but this works: copy the content to a new
notebiook? That is: Select All, Copy, New Notebook, Paste, Save As.
Complicated but not too slow if you use keyboard shortcuts..

You can set the Notebook-Option Saveable to False. This can of course be
changed by the users, so is not very secure. But it keeps them at least
from accidentially overwriting the original version...
