You can specify two passwords:
Anyone providing this password can view the PDF it protects. This is sometimes
called a user password. Further use of such a PDF depends on which
permissions are set.
Anyone providing this password can view the PDF and use it freely, regardless of
permissions settings. They can also modify, remove or add permissions settings.
This is sometimes called a master or owner password.
Before setting permissions you must supply and confirm a permissions password
and specify the encryption strength: 40-bit or 128-bit. This determines which
permissions are available. Make your settings and click OK.
Use New to name a new standard security control, make the desired settings and
click OK. Use Deleteto remove a security control. Use Defaultto return supplied
controls to default values and remove user-defined controls.
Note:Be sure to note the passwords you assign; without them you will not be
able to re-open the PDF files you created. Successful PDF protection depends on
good password distribution management.
Note:Older PDF viewers may support only40-bit encryption.
Note:ScanSoft PDF Create! usually creates “Normal” PDF files. That means
they can be viewed, printed, searched and modified in a PDF editor. But if some
actions are prohibited and a user cannot supply the correct permissions
password, the PDF may appear as image-only.
ScanSoft PDF Create! lets you add watermarks to the first page or all pages of your
PDF files. A watermark is like a stamp: it can come from text (such as ‘Confidential’,
‘Draft’ or ‘Sample’),from an image (such as a company logo) or from a composite,
which is a combination of existing watermarks. A page from an existing PDF can
also be used as a watermark in a new PDF.
Choose from standard watermark controls:
Company logo (import your company logo from an image or PDF file)
Do Not Copy (gray vertical text, top left)
Draft only (gray, angled text, centered)
Sample Only (red, angled text, bottom left)
Crosspage Watermark (import image from an image or PDF file)
PDF Watermark (import image from an image or PDF file)
Composite Watermark (mixture of text and image watermarks)
Confidential (5 choices: gray text in different locations)
