Setting file security

Sometimes you may want to lock a PDF document to prevent it from being edited. For example, now that you have gathered all the review comments for the marketing plan, you'll want to protect the compiled file from accidental changes.

Setting file security

1.
Choose File > Save As, and choose Standard from the Security menu.

A dialog box appears asking you to specify up to two passwords—one for opening the file and one for changing security options to the file. These passwords are case sensitive.

2.
For Open the Document, enter Circus, and press Tab.

3.
For Change Security Options, enter ferris.

4.
For Do Not Allow, select Changing the Document, Selecting Text and Graphics, and Adding or Changing Annotations and Form Fields. Click OK.



A dialog box appears asking you to confirm your Open password.

5.
Type Circus and click OK.

Another dialog box appears asking you to confirm your Security password.

6.
Type ferris and click OK.

7.
Name the document Mktplan2.pdf, and save it in the Lesson07 folder. Then close the document.
