Can't turn off drag & drop permanently


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Pro 9 through 12

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

You can click Edit, Preferences and click the checkbox to turn off drag and drop.  The problem is any user can do that too, or turn ON drag and drop.  I've built an enterprise solution for an aircraft parts manufacturer.  We have records that are archived.  Any user can turn on drag and drop and move info into archived records (that are otherwise completely secured).  The control is in Preferences.  This is a serious security problem.  It also sucks that we have to go to each workstation to turn off drag and drop.  Couldn't this be set up so drag and drop could be turned off for all workstations with one click.  Your prompt attention is greatly appreciated.  Help!
