How to Edit a doc when it has been signed?

Feb 4, 2014 8:34 AM

I am trying to edit a pdf and it comes up with this error message: "This document has been signed and can not be edited."  I have tried resaving the file but it still comes up with the message. There is no signature currently on the document. Any suggestions on being able to fix that?

    What does it show for the document restrictions summary when you select: File > Properties > Security


    A screen shot would be best, as well as a screen shot of the error message.
