Asset Export Password bug

If I export artboards to pdf using the asset export window - each file will be password protected without me specifying it.

This only happens if the last pdf I saved manualy (using save as) was password protected. Asset export will use the same password that I entered for this file.

This would be a nice feature if it was an option you could select or de select, but not when it happens without informing me.

The only workaround I know of, is to save a dummy pdf with the correct settings before using the asset export, needles to say this is a damper on workflow efficency.

You could create a PDF preset that doesn't have password protection and use it for export.

The presets used does not have password protection enabled. I am reasonably sure you can't put passwords in the presets actually. I tried now, and it the protection option was not enabled when I applied the preset.

I'm trying to post it, but whenever I click "post idea" the loading wheel turns and then nothing happens. 😕

Never mind, the text I posted was too large. The idea posting dialogue just failed to inform me of any such restriction
