Password removal possibility to be introduced
Hi, Once a receiver has opened a password protected file, it should be possible to remove the password if one wants. I am too sick of this.
As an example, I get monthly bill from the Mobile operators for just few dollars. The bill needs to be uploaded for claim. Currently I have to take the print the PW protected file first, then scan the printed copy and save it and then again upload it
Document Open Password cannot be removed unless document editing permissions are given to the password. So ,considering the issue resolved.
Understand your concern.
The creator of the document did not intend to allow any changes to the document, hence there is a second layer of protection which he used using Permissions Password. When you try to remove the Document Open Password, it is an attempt to change the document, hence you cannot do that unless you have the Permissions Password too. This is a feature to better protect the security of the document.
The point stands as you (try67) haven't answered the query.
Yes, I know the password of the document. It has traveled across the internet maze from the sender and has reached me safely. And NOW I want to store it in the hard disk after removing the PW. This option should be possible.
This is not going to happen. It would defeat the entire point of applying a security policy.
You can remove such a policy if you know the password and have Adobe Acrobat.
