I created a pdf from a Word document and set up protection suing an 8 character password. Then I had to make some changes in Word and re-created the PDF.  But this time, when I tried to apply the password, Adobe gave me the message that the password needs at least 6 characters. I tried using a longer one but no matter what I did, Adobe would not accept my password selection. Any thoughts?
