    The security setting for restrict editing PDF does not seem to be consistent

      Hi

       

      I changed Security Setting for restricting editing/printing along with password to open using Adobe Acrobat DC (I used the protect tool for restrict editing then went to file properties, then security tab)

       

      but it seemed erratic once i set both password in my testing...sometimes I opened the file with the correct password then tried to Edit the PDF and it DID NOT ASK ME FOR THE OTHER edit restrict password and allowed me to edit the PDF..

       

      so I cleared out both passwords (to open the file and to restrict editing) and reset them again and now it works fine...but I am not 100% confident in the security setting...have you heard of this before or do you think i just made an error in setting the security commands?

      thanks very much for any help.
