Cannot view password protected documents

May 28, 2011 4:59 PM

Most of the documents I post on the web are password protected to prevent editing or making changes only.  They are not password protected for opening. 

I have noted that the Windows Phone 7 will supposedly open such documents, but the resulting pages are blank.  This is true if the PDF version of the file is anything new like 6 or more recent; possibly the problem goes back further. I haven’t checked except to note that a very old file produced as version 3 and which is protected for editing loads and displays fine.

Does anyone know if there are any plans to produce a new Acrobat Reader for the Win Phone 7 that will display files created with newer versions of Acrobat that have some password protection?
