    Using JavaScript to create reports listing security settings

    Craig Flores
      Hi...I'm trying to create an Acrobat 8 batch process using a JavaScript that creates a log/report that lists the security settings for each PDF in a directory. I want to be able to periodically run this script so that I can ensure that (a)each file uses the departmental permissions password and (b) that the set of permissions (copying not allowed etc.) are set according to our standard.

      I've looked at the JavaScript reference etc. but am seriously confused. There's a securityhandler object but how can I use that (or something else) to get a list of the doc's security permissions and to check that password x has been used?

      Many thanks.
