I am the author of a document but what I thought is my password is rejected. How do I open the document?
I let the subject provided the most info. I had encrypted the document that I'm trying to open.
I now see a relevant reply, as in "sorry you are out of luck".
Yes, if you set a password and forget it, you are out of luck. Adobe do not secretly keep the password somewhere so they can give it back to you.
