Thank you so much for sparing the time to provide your expert comment.
I have taken the liberty of providing a short screen video to illustrate my
It would be great if I was doing something wrong & didn't have to search
for a new way of securing documents.
Again, thank you for your help.

Assign also a open password to the document and don't allow printing of the document.
I am very grateful to you for your patience in helping me to resolve my
security issue, it is a great relief!
Thank you once again.

Well, my euphoria didn't last long!
I have been continuing to test the security of my encryption & find that I
would have to give a client the 'open folder' password so that he/she read
the pdf. With this (the open folder' folder password by going to the site
provided earlier I can remove *all *the password protection on the pdf file
& convert to word.
The reason I produce a document is to provide to a client & for it to be
any use he/she has to read it (i.e. open the file). From this point
forward it appears the client can do as he/she wishes as the passwords can
then be stripped.
I look forward to your thoughts.

I have never seen a 'open folder' password.
Hi Bernd, Perhaps my terminology was incorrect. With the primary aim to
restrict editing of the document the first three steps are:
1. Click Secure
2. Select Encrypt password
3. Select password to open document - it is this that one has to provide to
a client in order for them to access & read the document - as soon as they
have this they can rip the rest of the password protection out
of the pdf& convert it into 'MS Word'.

Yes, there exists many software which can remove the security.
