Using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Version: 20.12.20048.400142) with Protected Mode Enabled At Statup set to: True...
I have a PDF file that has "broad" file permissions - multiple user groups have read/write access to the file.
I open the file in PDF Reader and then Save it (same filename).
When I review the file permissions in Windows, I see that some user groups have been removed and that my user has been granted specific access to the file.
If I turn off Protected Mode, then the Windows file permissions do not get modifed.
Why is Protected Mode altering the Windows file permissions?
I cannot find any documentation stating that file permissions would be modified.
Is this a known issue ?
Other than turning off Protected Mode, how do I stop the file permissions from being modified?
Have something to add?
