    How do I enable rights in Reader?




      I am trying to create a process for our employees to digitally sign documents.  This is very simple if you have Standard but none of them do- they only have Reader.  I know that you're able to sign documents in reader if the rights are enabled... however I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this.  I think I read somewhere that you could use LivecycleES2 to enable rights.  I tried to download a trial version of this to test it out but it took hours with no success.  Regardless of whether or not that program does work, we have a large company and likely will not purchase it after the trial runs out anyways... otherwise I would just request that we purchase Standard for everyone.


      Can anyone tell me if it's possible to enable rights when creating a pdf from a word document (printing to cute pdf) OR once the pdf has already been created and you only have Reader to open it with.

      Thank you

          You would need Acrobat to enable the rights. It is available in all versions of 9 (Pro, Standard and Extended) or the Pro version of 8.


          Keep in mind that enable PDF's have a limit to their use and aren't intenended to be used in a vloume (corporate) situation. Your use may or may not quilify but you'll want to study the EULA before making too many plans to be sure you are covered.
