    Security settings Acrobat XI - change standard settings




      We use password security to allow only printing of our PDF files. Modifications on the files are blocked. After converting files from .docx into .pdf, we need to open Acrobat XI Pro (running Windows 10) at File>Properties>Security Tab. There is the drop-down menu, and we select Password Protected. Acrobat then opens the window, where we need to select if we disable printing and modifications.


      Question: is there a way to change the printing and modification settings, so when selected Password Protected, Acrobat will open the new window already selected as "Printing High Quality" allowed and "Modifications" disabled?


      Any advice is welcome! :-)

          Hi IM2016  ,


          Apologies for a delayed response.


          You woukd need to create an action from the "Action Wizard' for what you are trying to achieve.

          Please refer to the steps below and see if it works:

          • In the Action wizard>Protection tab
          • Choose Encrypt> Specify Settings
          • Then choose "Password Security"
          • Under Permissions tab, you can select the reuired changes and hit OK
          • Once done Save the document changes and it will be good to go.


          Let me know if you still need help.
