    How do I secure a PDF that has been signed so that it can't be opened in the new Word

      Hi all

       

      Hoping someone can help. As the title suggests I need some advice in securely locking a PDF after it has been signed.

       

      • I know how to secure a PDF document so that it can't be opened in the new version of the Word 2013.
        • File > properties > Security and pick password protect
        • Then open Word and down the bottom left hand corner click 'open other documents'
        • This then attempts to open the PDF and if secure it will fail to open if unsecured it will open making the content fully editable

       

      • However when you sign a document you can't secure it by going file > properties > Security and pick password protect.
        • Then open Word and down the bottom left hand corner click 'open other documents'
        • This then opens the PDF and makes the content fully editable but removes the signature
        • The content is fully editable - how can I lock this????????????????????????????

       

      Thanks in advance
