InDesign: Is there any way to lock all the styles (paragraph and character) and master pages and keep all of them in a master document only?

I’m setting up a workflow for working in a book with various chapters and I don’t want the designers to change the styles in one document in the book. I just want to be able to change the styles in a master document.

I know about the sync feature but is very poor, because I cannot delete a style. Also allows other documents to be the master, which is very bad in our case.

What would be really nice would be a book to be linked to a styles library. SO you don’t need any sync.

Maybe a script could do that, I don’t know.. Other alternatives?

Answer

Have you considered using InCopy and not letting these content-creators mess with your design decisions?
