How do you change Document Restrictions Summary?

Aug 28, 2009 12:56 PM

I just recently started using Adobe Acrobat 9.  I am recreating a document which will be saved as a pdf form (where the user will complete and return to my attention).  The previous document that was used at my company shows the following under the Security Document Properties:

 

Security Method:  No Security, Can be Opened by all versions of Acrobat

Under Document Restrictions Summary--Changing the Document, Document Assembly, and Creation of the Template Pages are not allowed.

 

This new form needs to mirror the previous security settings.  Is the a way to just alter the Document Restrictions Summary page without having create a security policy?

 

Many thanks.

    Have you looked at using "Password" security in the PDF.

    Hi All,

     

    I have a similar issue, however mine is as follows.

     

    I'm currently using Adobe Standard 9 and Adobe Reader 9.1

     

    The problem i'm having is trying to enable the measuring tool facility in documents, if i take any particular document and open it using Standard, it says there are no document restrictions in place.  If however I open the same document with Reader, it is telling me that there are various different restrictions in place, including commenting, which is why i'm guessing I can't utilise the measuring facility.

     

    There are no security restrictions in place on any of the documents i'm using.

     

    Hope someone can help, as the documentation with Standard 9 is woeful, and the usually successful google search has turned up nothing!

     

    Regards

     

    Martin

    You can enable this with the Professional edition of Adobe Acrobat.

    Thank you very much for your response.

     

    Is this the only way to achieve this? I had a feeling this was available

    in previous versions of standard?

     

    Regards

    No, you can also use the Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions ES software:
