While the purpose of Quark Brand Manager is to enable your sales and marketing teams to customize and print marketing and sales materials, a core feature is the ability to lock down design and brand elements and text that, if changed, would violate your brand guidelines.

This means your corporate marketing group defines which areas of a template are customizable (such as specific contact information, product images, and text boxes) and those that users cannot change (such as your company logo, legal disclaimers, and other basic brand elements whose use is governed by brand guidelines).
