I read this article:


and I have created an encrypted image (.dmg) with no issue.


I'm trying to password protect a file on my computer.  It is a Word document.  I can't figure out how to move it to the encrypted image.


The support article said, "You can move files to or from an encrypted disk image as easily as you can from a non-encrypted disk image."


I tried dragging the file to the image....nothing.


Not sure where to go from here.  Thanks in advance for the help.
