Allow Commenting

Post by JRH » Sun Jun 27 2010

Using PDF Converter 4.0 Developer Pro, we're unable to generate PDF's that allow commenting with Adobe Reader. We set the Permissions property to (-64 + 32). We've tried both 40 and 128 bit encryption, and every combination of owner/user passwords.

The Security tab in Adobe Reader always shows that Commenting is "Not Allowed", and no "Comment & Markup" sub-menu appears on the Tools menu. However, clicking the "Show Details" button on the Security tab shows that Commenting is "Allowed".

What do we need to do to allow commenting?

Thanks

Commenting with Adobe Reader and not the full Acrobat is only possible when using Adobe's products. To enable this feature a special Adobe proprietary digital signature is inserted in the PDF. The permissions that you can set using the regular PDF security only apply for the full Acrobat or other PDF editing applications.

Should we be able to generate a PDF with PDF Converter that allows commenting using the full version of Acrobat? If so, is there something special that the Acrobat user has to do to enable comments?

Thanks

Commenting with Acrobat Professional is enabled by default. You can disable commenting by adding password security to the PDF document and changing the various security flags.
