I have some users in my organisation who like to use a speicific password to protect doucments, this is 5 characters long. Since upgrading them to Acorbat DC Pro, it seems the password is no longer available as it does not meet the minimum requirements for the password.
I was wondering if it might be possible for us to change the minimum requirements or if this is completely locked down by the software?
Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear about the issue you are experiencing.
With the new release of version 21.05.20048 the minimum password length must be at least six characters long. Now the document security password must be at least six characters long for both the ways by which you can set a document password:
File > Properties > Security tab: The minimum password length is introduced in this release.
File > Protect Using Password: The minimum password length was introduced in a previous release.
