Edit copy of strategy while preserving origninal

I purchased a suite of strategies. One of them is lacking a close trade button and when I enable the strategy it powers on with both long and short buttons on.
I don't mind not having the close trade button but it would be nice to edit the code so that the long and short buttons are not active when I enable strategy.

The fella I bought the strategies from won't be making any adjustments for us so I'm just looking for a solution. I've heard that you can hit unlock code button, however the code will not be able for editing via NT gui anymore.

I don't mind that since it seems I can create a copy of the file and work off of that. Is there a code snippet I can add into the stream of code and what section would I set the code? Any advice appreciated.
