All of my documents have the same password. I send them out for review with a DRAFT watermark and password encryption. When they are returned, I have to unlock and remove the watermark manually. I do this for around 100 documents per day. Adobe doesn't facilitate an Action to automate this process, so I was hoping there was a way to run JavaScript to do so. I'm a JavaScript novice, so looking for something I could pretty much cut and paste. I appreciate any insight you can offer.

Not possible with JS, as it can't un-protect a file, but an Action should be able to do it.

Thank you for your reply, try67. I tried to do this with an Action, but Adobe Pro DC does not allow it. I guess it's just a manual process.

Thank you for your reply, Bernd. I came across that thread a few days ago. The links no longer work and it appears from the last post that Adobe no longer allows decryption in Actions. I'm looking for Javascript that might do the same job.
