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.

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
