Some of you have asked us how we create password protected PDF versions of our report. Do we use a free tool? Yes, we do. We use Primo PDF from ActivePDF to create our reports.
When you install Primo PDF, it appears as a new printer in your Print Menu. You can convert Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and any type of document to a PDF file by printing to the Primo PDF printer.
While there are many free PDF converters, this is the one we liked most - this alone creates password protected PDFs.
Here's a 1-2-3 guide to creating password protected PDFs with PrimoPDF
1. In the Print menu, select "Primo PDF"

2. When you press OK, you are presented with this dialog box to set the properties.

3. Click on Security to open up this dialog box, enter the password you want.

You are done.
We just wish Primo PDF also converted hyperlinks and bookmarks equally well.
