I am using Adobe XI Pro and am familiar with securiting and applying protection to the document. However, I want to be able to restrict editing for the user I send the document to, but still allow them to make redactions if necessary (i.e. removing our logo or commission amounts) in case they need to send it to their customer without that private info showing. I just don't want them to be able to edit the original content. Any thoughts?
Doesn't seem possible.
If you apply a Change Password and allow annotations, then the best you can achieve is marking the words and images for redactions. You CANNOT actually apply the redactions that have been marked until the Change Password is supplied to remove the Security and then you or another can apply the redactions.
