When I check Adobe's site, I see that "All Adobe products enforce the
restrictions set by the permissions password. However, if third-party
products do not support these settings, document recipients are able to
bypass some or all of the restrictions you set."
I would be interested to know whether anyone has a good alternative PDF
editor to Acrobat Professional. My hunch is that an app for editing PDFs
is most likely to have a high level of functionality, because someone
handling PDFs on a desktop will just get Acrobat Professional.
