    Password settings


      Hello all,


      I created a pdf form with Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2  . It works perfectly, but now I need to set a password to prevent users (from my company) to be able to read all the javascript code behind the form, for security matters. I mean, if you ever open the pdf form with LC Designer, the software has to prompt a password box for editing, otherwise the file does not open. In the same time, if you open the file with Acrobat Reader, all other functions must remain for users (printing/filling etc...).

      I know this is possible, as I found some interactive pdf forms protected this way on the internet. I tried to set a password within LCD, but this locks filling.

      So my question is : from which application do you set such a password : LCD or Acrobat Pro (I have the 9.0 version) ? and how do you proceed ?

      Many thanks in advance for your help.

          Under the File/Form Properties you can choose PDF Security and set up the screen this way. You will be asked to create a password when you save the document and each time Designer opens it you will need to enter the password to gain access to it.

            Thank you so much Paul for replying. It works but.... it disables the "save as" function. I've been trying several options with no success so far. There must be a solution anyway ?


            [Edit] My fault...I just had to return to Acrobat Pro, then extend rights for Reader.

            You made my day Paul, thanks again
