Dear Forum,

Some of the pdfs that we are making or editing with Acrobat 6 and its printer drivers are not able to be printed by our customers that are still using Acrobat Reader 5. I am testing a process that makes bill analysis pdfs using the Word 2003 application and the Acrobat 6 printer driver.

I discovered a statement in the Adobe Pdf Document Properties dialog box under the Adobe Pdf settings tab, that if someone could help me with, could make our Acrobat 5 customers able to view and print our bill analysis pdfs. To get to the Adobe Pdf Document Properties dialog box, you have to invoke the print dialog box from an Office 2003 application, choose the Adobe PDF driver, and then click on the Properties button.

The statement under the Adobe Pdf settings tab reads, “Use these settings to create PDF documents suitable for reliable viewing and printing of business documents. The PDF documents can be opened with Acrobat and Reader 5.0 and later.” Do the words “THESE SETTINGS” refer to Default Settings and/or Adobe PDF Security? And if so, what should they be? Default Settings = Standard? Adobe PDF Security = None?

Help and comments appreciated.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
