    I need to secure a pdf so it cannot be edited, except for the first page.  Is this possible?

      Can you secure all but one page of a pdf?  I would like the first page to be able to be edited, but the rest of the document to be protected from editing, is this possible?  If so, how?

          What do you mean by editing PDF? If you have a PDF form and want to make some form fields, in your case pages other than the first page, non-editable, you can lock the form fields on all pages other than first. You can write a JavaScript that does that, include it in the original PDF form and activate it at some point in time (like when a certain button is clicked, or certain form field gets focus). If you mean other ways of editing, like changing text on a page, you cannot protect only part of the document from that.
