Hello :

I need help with an award certificate. It is in pdf format now, and when I save it with a name, date, and title those areas can be changed. I would like to change it so that it can not be edited. Can you help me?

Hi Robin

 

Hope you are doing well. As described, after saving the PDF with Name date and title those entries are changeable and you want to secure the PDF.

 

Would you mind sharing the steps that you are doing to save the PDF file?

 

If you are the owner/Author of the PDF file, you can prevent users from changing PDFs. The restrict editing option prohibits users from editing text, moving objects, or adding form fields. Users can still fill in form fields, sign, or add comments. For more information please look at the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/using/securing-pdfs-passwords.html#id_20302

 

Another way to secure the PDF is to apply the digital signature on the document that will lock the document from further changes. For more information please look at the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/using/securing-pdfs-certificates.html

 

Regards

Amal
