I've downloaded the Pro DC app and I'd like to redact a PDF. Really that was the whole point of buying a paid edition. But now I'm getting this instead. How might we work around that?

Hi!

 

I hope you are doing well!!

 

The above message indicates that the Author/owner of the PDF file has applied restrictions to the PDF.

It says that the Document properties don't allow to make changes in it. Open File>right click Document Properties>Security>check the Document restriction summary. The owner of the document has setup the permission password to make any further changes to it. 

 

You may have to contact the owner/author of the PDF file and have to request for the password. Without that, noting much can be done.

 

I hope this information helps.

 

Thanks,

Anand Sri.

Without the password you can't change the document.
