I'm just wondering whether it is possible at all to password protect multiple pdfs at the one time using Acrobat X Standard? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.Sue

No. Standard doesn't have the batch processing capability that Pro has, but even there you can only do so using the same password. What exactly are you trying to achieve?-------------------------------------Visit my custom-made PDF scripts website: http://try67.blogspot.comContact me personally: email@example.com
This past week we've (many hands make light work) had to print and password protect 1000s of documents which were split into various folders but all required the same passwords. It would have been ideal but ended up setting up an Encrypt action and used that - just wanted to avoid opening 1000s of documents.

So you do have Acrobat Pro?

Unfortunately no we don't. We added a new encrypt security policy and then just applied that policy to each document. Sorry, don't really know the proper terminology.
I thought you were talking about an Action (a batch process in Acrobat Pro). Well, if you had Acrobat Pro you could do it automatically over your entire folder of files.
