    PDF writer with Security

    I have a client that is in the need of a PDF program that will add "Read passwords". He does not use it enough to warrant the "High cost" of the Adobe program.
    Has any one used any of these smaller programs that have the password capability?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    At the risk of being heretical, openoffice version 2 .0.4 has an export as PDF capability. (with security)
    Adding the extendedPDF addon adds more features.
    The combination works beautifully and is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    Thanks, BUT NO thanks. Been that route, and will NEVER touch that product again.

    NEVER is a long time Dave! <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15>

    For what it's worth, I've found OOO to be invaluable in an environment where several versions of MS Office co-exist uneasily. It never fails to open a document generated by Word etc and before I upgraded from Office 97 to Office 2000 (I work for the UK NHS, things move slooowww around here) it was the platform of choice for spreadsheets (because excel 97 crashed regularly on my and other PCs in my department..).

    Anyway, to get back to the point. It will create complex PDFs with security and hyperlinks and images et al and it is, as I said <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>.
