Linux Mint Debian MATE LibO 126.96.36.199
When I export a Writer document as an pdf-File and have no security settings at all, it creates a pdf-file with the properties:
- Document Assembly: Not Allowed
- Commenting: Not Allowed
Where is a (for me) hidden setting, which does not allow document assembly and commenting.
The same settings on my XP machines (LibO 188.8.131.52) creates pdf-files, which allow both modifications.
Thanks in advance for any hint.
Edit based on @dajare 's comment:
LMDE MATE version 201403 updated 30-May-2014 LibO 184.108.40.206; XP see above
LMDE Adobe Reader v9.5.5 XP Adobe Reader v11.0.6
I repeated the test. pdf-export settings in LibO: Under “General” only “View PDF after export” was flagged in the XP and LMDE LibO
pdf-export settings used on both machines:
Properties LMDE pdf-export of Writer:
Properties XP pdf-export of Writer:
I had to recognize that I missinterpreted “Document Assembly: Not Allowed”. My wrong understanding was that I cannot combine 2 or more pdf-files into a new one. I can combine LMDE&LibO exported pdf-files with above to be seen properties . Test made on XP machine using pdf-995-edit. Test is not yet made on the LMDE machine. (pdf-995 is not available for Linux.)
pdf-exported files created on XP with above to be seen properties can be commented using XP Adobe reader
pdf-exported files created on LMDE with above to be seen properties cannot be commented using LMDE Adobe reader. When trying to open the commenting tools, there is a message that this toolbar is only visible it the pdf-file properties allow this. So far I did not find a workaround or the route cause of this problem
However, when I open the LMDE pdf-export file on my XP machine and I can comment the file the same way as if would be created on the XP machine.
When you look at the properties of the LMDE/LibO exported files you see that extraction of pages is allowed, whereas the properties of the XP/LibO exported files show it is not allowed.
Using pdf995 on my XP machine, I can extract page from pdf-exports created on XP and on LMDE
The equivalent test on the LMDE machine is not yet made.
I will make the aforementioned not yet done test on my KMDE machine in the next days.
@dajare - Now am I very interested in your comments. Others’ comments are also highly appreciated.
