Hi there.
First off, ensure the developer tab is showing by going to the file (round pearl menu button in the top left corner) and selecting the button on the bottom of the menu called "Word Options". This will bring you up a screen as below >>>>>>>>

Now, ensure the developer toolbar is enabled with a tick as in the picture.
Go to the document and find the text that you can't modify
Ensure the developer toolbar is displayed and click in the document where the text is and then press the Group button in the toolbar and press the Ungroup option as below >>>>>

That is it - you should now be able to modify the text without any problems.

This modification is not allowed because the selection is locked


I know it's a problem with the "Full Version" but please verify that you are not using a trial version of the software. This typically happens when the trial edition has been left unactivated therefore it goes into a reduced functionally mode.
Other than that, the document you're trying to open may be marked as final or is protected.
Here's a helpful link. http://www.404techsupport.com/2009/01/13/microsoft-word-this-modification-is-not-allowed-because-the-selection-is-locked/

I hope this helps.

When trying to type to insert into MS Word the following error occurs - "This modification is not allowed because the selection is locked.


You're using a free trial version of Microsoft Office - good for 25 uses only - then it locks you out
of being able to modify your own files, and also locks you out of being able to create new files.

This is an error that happens when you try to modify or use a document that is locked.
1. Open the document
2. Select the Devloper tab
3. Click on "Protect Document"
4. On the Restrict Formatting and Editing Task Pane on the right side of your screen, Click on "Stop Protection" on the bottom of the task pane
5. If there is no password, you can start using the document
