1. Do the links still show up in the link tool?
2. What type of action is it?
The links do not appear in the links pane after the security is added. I'm not sure I know what you're asking in #2. It's a security action that adds password protection.
Also so please describe the steps you follow to add security and also anything else you do at the same time.
The hyperlinks are Go To Webpage. The "steps" for adding Security are choosing the Security action, adding the files, and waiting for the process to run. During the process, I add a permissions password when prompted for each document. Then the action encrypts and saves. That's all I know.
