I would try looking for tutorials online instead of books.
http://www.acrobatusers.com has some very good ones, including a very good
Forums system where several heavy-duty Acrobat experts (and me...) post.
This tutorial, for example, will teach you everything you need to know (and
(ps. - before you start I should let you know it's not possible to set the
file properties of a PDF to be read-only using a script in Acrobat...)
I've searched this stuff far and wide and I'm not finding how to even begin. I'll give the tutorials a try.
This was really helpful to me too! Thanks.
