View Full Version : PDF locked for editing?

6th October 2005, 11:41 AM
Hey guys,

Just a quick question. I have some pdf's here at work and I am going to want to edit them when I get home (I have acrobat pro at home).

I only have acrobat reader here at work and I just want to know if anyone can tell me how can I tell if they are locked for editing? Is there a way to do this with Acrobat reader, or will that only show up in acrobat pro?


Edit: I just looked it up in document properties and it says that there is no security, but in the document restrictions summary, the following are not allowed:
Document Assembly, Commenting, Signing, Creation of Template Pages and Submitting Forms.
None of those should stop me from editing it should they?

Check the document properties.
