Answers / Protect PDF files
I need to automatically open, sign, lock, and save PDF files created in a program I've written for a client with Adobe Acrobat X.I can write code to activate Adobe Acrobat X but I do not know the command line parameters, if they exist, that would allow me to open the PDF file my program just created, digitally signt the document, lock the document, and save the signed and locked document.Any help, or references to where I can get the information, would be appreciated.Thanks

Adobe Acrobat was designed with a very limited command lime commands like open and print. There is no command line parameter to sign in any manner a PDF. You might be able to perform this with a LiveCycle ES server.
As it has been said, Acrobat is not really usable as a Command Line tool.Before spending a lot of money for a LiveCycle server product, you might look around for command line tools.You would then find, for example, SecurSign by Appligent. Being a Command Line tool, it would be easy to integrate it into a shell script or so.Hope this can help.Max Wyss.
