How to not let .pdf files open in adobe livecycle designer?


Level 1

I have a pdf file designed in Adobe LiveCycle Designer and generated through AEM LiveCycle Process. I want to not let the pdf file to open in Adobe LiveCycle Designer or it should prompt for a password when opened in Adobe LiveCycle Designer, so that the code cannot be viewed by unauthorized users. Please, let me know how it could be done?

Thanks, for help.

In Designer under Form Properties, there's a PDF Security option that allows you to specify a password

The form properties are not getting saved. Also, the pdf generated through process is not getting password protected in any way, not from pdf opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, nor from AEM Designer. I want that it should be password protected only when opened in AEM Designer.
