    Are protected forms not fillable?

    ckliewer

      I've updated to the latest iOS version of Adobe Reader that enables form-filling, and imported several work-related forms with some security protections (changing, assembly, extraction).  Filling,  signing, and commenting are allowed, yet in the app the documents appear as locked and are unfillable.  I even tried extending permissions to Adobe Reader users, but this had no effect.  When I open one of these forms, a lock icon in the lower right iPad screen corner reveals a message that the document is protected and "some edits may not be allowed."  I can fill it out just fine on the desktop computer.  Am I missing something?  Seems reasonable to expect many fillable forms to be protected by the author, so this shouldn't hinder the ability to fill or sign them.
