When document protection is enabled, the ranges with permissions appear in the following way.


By default, the highlighting color is selected from a predefined colors collection. This is done to specify different highlighting colors for ranges that belong to different user groups. There is no straightforward way to change these colors manually. The HighlightColor property changes the highlighting color for ranges that are editable by the current user only.
