Hi Laurie,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

As you have mentioned above, you receive the Bad Parameter error when saving a password-protected document. Did you create that PDF?

 

Please refer to the following help document with information and troubleshooting steps on bad parameter error: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/bad-parameter-while-deleting-pages-in-acrobat.html

Check if that helps.

 

Let us know if the issue persists.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

I was receiving the error message. What I figured out is that once a docuemnt is signed you cannot make any changes even adding a password. The password must be added before the digital signature. I hope that helps.
