Reader Extension

Is there an easy way to see whether or not a form has been reader extended?  The only way o know how currently is to check if the “save a copy” is an option.  Thanks.

You can open the form in acrobat or reader and check the document properties

Thanks.  For a PDF that is reader extended and password protected, and cannot figure out which aspect of the properties will tell me whether or not it is reader extended.

The properties on the top show about the pdf protection while the below will show the reader extended properties,

I looked at the security settings for a reader extended PDF vs. a non-reader extended PDF and they are identical.  The security settings only change after applying an encryption method.  It would be more efficient if there was a way to see that the reader extension has been applied, and if so, from where and with which rights extended.

I will post a sample which will allow you to verify the Reader Extensors applied to a document soon
