If you have a Notes form you should be able to prevent editing the information in certain fields, including attachments in rich text fields, by putting those fields into a Controlled Access section. You would use a computed formula for the section editors, such as the following:
@If(WorkflowStatus = "Draft"; ""; "[nobody]")
Translation: if the WorkflowStatus field is "Draft," anyone can edit the contents of the section (assuming they have access to edit the document). If the status is anything else, nobody can edit these fields.
