Adding a Password to Multiple PDF Documents in Acrobat

Posted by 29 Jan, 2009

Have you ever had to add a password to multiple PDF documents and you did not want to have to set the password (s) individually? The solution to adding a password to multiple PDF documents is to setup a “batch” sequence in Acrobat. A batch sequences represent common tasks that you routinely perform to prepare files for distribution. You do not have to open any of the PDF files before you begin to run these batch sequences.

To set up a batch sequence using Acrobat:

  1. Choose AdvancedĀ > Document Processing > Batch Processing.
  2. In the Batch Sequences dialog box, select a batch sequence, and then click the Run Sequence button.
  3. In the Run Sequence Confirmation dialog box, verify that the sequence you selected is the one you want, and click OK.
  4. In the Select Files To Process dialog box, select the files that you want, and then click Select. (In Windows, these files must be in the same folder.)
  5. If a message asks for additional input for a specific command in the sequence, select the options you want and click OK.
  6. When the progress bar disappears, click Close.
