What are the security settings to lock down a form with fillable fields and yet allow someone with Reader to fill in the fields as will as save the form and print it?

You want to allow someone to open your document and fill out the form (in the fields you have created), but not change or edit the form, right? Here's the answer - assuming you are using Acrobat Pro and someone will be opening the PDF using at least Acrobat Reader 9 and up:
Tools > Protection > Encrypt < Encrypt with Password
Answer YES to change the security.
A new window opens:
     Do NOT select Document Open (or that will require a password to open the document.)
     Select: Permissions (Check the box next to "Restrict editing and printing of the document.")
     Change the following 2 settings from the drop-down box:
          Printing Allowed: Select High Resolution
          Changes Allowed: Select Commenting, filling in form fields, and signing signature fields
          Leave selected: "Enable text access for screen reader devices for the visually impaired"
          Change Permissions Password (insert a strong password)
          Leave all other settings alone in "Options"
          OK - OK
          Re-enter the Permissions Password (the one you entered above)
          OK - OK
          Save the PDF to apply the security [notice that (SECURED0 will appear after the document title]

  • The BEx Analyzer cannot generate VBA code due to the security settings

    Hello experts,
    when I try to open a query in BEx Analyser I get this error message for each Item of the Query:
    Diagnosis
    The BEx Analyzer cannot generate VBA code due to the security settings.
    System Response
    VBA code is not generated.
    Procedure
    Choose Tools -> Macro -> Security.
    On the Trusted Publishers tab page, select Trust access to Visual Basic project.
    Choose OK.
    Close the BEx Analyzer and continue working as before.
    Access to Visual Basic project is only needed when generating VBA code.
    This only takes place in design mode or when 3.x workbooks are upgraded.
    Of course I did exactly what was recommanded in the "procedure-section" of this error message. But BEx ist still not working!
    I use SAP NetWeaver 7.0 together with MS Excel 2007

    Hello experts,
    I am an additional person interested in the way this issue was solved.
    I confirm that the issue is coming from the SP2 of Microsoft Office (I have another environnement without the SP2 and everything works well), and I am in a situation where I can't remove the update.
    Regards
    Guillaume P.
    EDIT :
    Solution found : I applied the bi710sp10p_1001-10004472.exe patch

  • How do you modify the web.xml to lock down the pages from a user role

    how do you modify the web.xml to lock down the pages from a user role

    I'll make a stab at your question:
    The following is an example of where a URL is protected within a web.xml deployment descriptor. In this example, the URL /protectedA within the application is protected:
    <!-- security constraints -->
    <security-constraint>
    <web-resource-collection>
    <web-resource-name>protectedA</web-resource-name>
    <url-pattern>/protectedA</url-pattern>
    </web-resource-collection>
    <!-- authorization -->
    <auth-constraint>

  • How can I disable the Security Settings popup in Acrobat XI?

    We are currently using Acrobat X and are getting ready to upgrade to version XI. We dynamically set the security settings w/a button in the toolbar menu to secure documents. Works great. However, while testing the same functionality in version XI a popup always appears when this function is called. The settings are correct in the security setting popup but we do not need the popup to actually appear. Is there a way to disable the popup from appearing? It's confusing my users.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Adobe generally has quarterly updates for Acrobat/Reader. If they decide to fix this, I'd be surprised if it made the first one (January 2013?), so it would probably be more like April/July, but that's just a guess. When you submit the bug report, be sure to include how much this negatively affects your workflows and prevents you from upgrading.

  • Video calls are not secure - not showing lock icon

    Hi guys,
    Calls between 9971/8945. Video calls are not getting secured.
    video calls are not secure - not showing lock icon.
    However audio calls are secure
    CUCM Version : 8.6.2.22900-9
    1 pub and 2 sub
    Secured cluster : mixed mode
    9971 : sip9971.9-3-1-33 - running version - same issue

    8945 : sccp8941-8945.9-3-2-11 – Running version.
    Please suggest.
    thx
    Ashish

    Would you be able to try 9.3(2) firmware or later?  I checked with 9.4(1) and I see a lock icon when placing a video call on my 9971.  According to the new and changed information 9.3(2) added additional support for when to display the lock icon,

  • What are Novells recommended settings for policies

    Hello,
    Who can tell me please what are Novells recommended settings for policies? Should we make a few big Policy where everything is handled (for example a policy for standalone workstations, one for desktop PCs, one for notebooks etc..) or single policies (for example "Desktop Wallpaper", "Enable Active Desktop", or "Turn off Aero Shake window minimizing mouse gesture" and so on) and put them in a PolicyGroup. What is the best way?

    The fewer the policies the better.
    Generally Folks do something such as a WS assigned policy as a baseline
    and then a user one to over-ride.
    Trying to create one policy per setting would likely cause windows great
    confusion as well as being very slow.

  • When previewing my website in Dreamweaver flash crashed - I need to change the security settings but don't know how to do this

    I use Dreamweaver and Adobe Bridge to create slide shows on my website. When 'previewing' the slideshow - in Dreamweaver it opens Firefox - it crashed and the dialogue box opens telling me to change my 'settings' - it doesn't do this if I preview in IE - which I don't understand. I need help in knowing where to go to change the security settings so that this doesn't happen. Incidentally, when I am on the web through Firefox, my website slideshows work perfectly>

    You can set the pref dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs to to -1 on the about:config page to disable the timeout.
    See also http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin-container_and_out-of-process_plugins
    To open the <i>about:config</i> page, type <b>about:config</b> in the location (address) bar and press the "<i>Enter</i>" key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.<br />
    If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.<br />

    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.

    Terribly sorry Joseph Kriz. I had absolutley no intention of annoying anyone.

Hope my unintentional typing will be forgiven and causes no further agitation.The only additional comment I can make on your response is that "I do not use capital letters or CAPS LOCK while I try to enter my administrator password".

  • When I backup from my iPhone via iCloud backup and for some reason it only completes half, then will it save the half completed backup

    My iCloud backup only completes upto half steps(sometimes) so will it save the half completed backup in iCloud

    This needs to be addressed because you will not be able to use an incomplete backup.  Not being able to back up to iCloud can be caused by a corrupt existing backup that needs to be deleted, or by data on your device that is causing the backup to fail.  To troubleshoot these, try deleting your last iCloud backup (if you have one) by turning off iCloud Backup in Settings>iCloud>Storage & Backup, then tap Manage Storage, tap your device under Backups, then tap Delete Backup.  Then go back and turn iCloud Backup back on and try backing up again.
    If it still won't back up, you may have an app or something in your camera roll that is causing the backup to fail.  To locate which one, go to Settings>iCloud>Storage & Backup>Manage Storage, tap the name of your device under Backups, under Backup Options tap Show All Apps, then turn them all to Off (including camera roll) and try backing up again.  If the backup is successful, then the camera roll and/or one of your apps is causing the backup to fail and you'll have to located by process of elimination. Turn the camera roll On and try backing up again.  If it succeeds, turn some of your apps to On and try backing up again.  If it succeeds again, turn some more apps to On then try again; repeat this process until it fails.  Eventually you'll be able to locate the problem app and exclude it from your backup.

  • Hi. Just switched from PC to MAC (lion 6.7) and I am trying to import my bookmarks but Firefox for mac will not recognize the file. How do I move my bookmarks to my MAC from my PC?

    Hi. Just switched from PC to MAC (lion 6.7) and I am trying to import my bookmarks but Firefox for MAC will not recognize the Bookmark back up file. How do I move my bookmarks to my MAC from my PC?

    Make sure that the backup file with the bookmarks has the correct file extension: .html for a HTML backup and .json for a JSON backup.<br />
    You can check that via the right-click context menu of that file and open the Properties.<br />
    If you are not sure about the file type then you can open the file in Firefox via "File > Open File"<br />
    A JSON backup will show as one long text line without line breaks and a HTML backup as a web page with clickable links.<br />
    A JSON backup starts with: <nowiki>{"title":"","id":1,"dateAdded":</nowiki><br />
    An HTML backup starts with: <nowiki><!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1></nowiki>

  • A string that can be displayed as both ASCII and hex in an indicator will only save the data to a file in ASCII format

    We can see the data in an indicator just fine, but when we try to write that string of hexadecimal data to a file, it will only save the data in ASCII format.  
    This sounds fairly simple, as the indicator can be selected to display the data in several different formats (VI>Properties>Appearance>Display Style: Normal, Backslash...., Hexadecimal).  However, I have been unable, as of yet, to save the data in different formats.
    Solved!
