In this guide, we will learn about the steps in converting your word document to PDF as well as PDF password protection for your PLR or completed ebook. This process will also work with the free suites Open Office and LibreOffice.
The first step is to head to the top of your document and click on ‘File’. Then, there will be a number of options for you to choose from. Select ‘Export’.
When you have clicked on ‘Export’, you will then have two options, which is ‘Create PDF/XPS Document’ and ‘Change File Type’. Select ‘Create PDF/XPS Document’.
A window will pop up once you have clicked on the selection. This window will enable you to select where you would want to save your exported file. To make it easier for you to search for your file, it’s recommend you save it on your desktop.
The next step is to enable password protection for your ebook. You can see on the right hand side of the pop up window there is an ‘Options’ button. Click on it and a small pop up window will appear.
Under ‘PDF options’, click on the box that says ‘Encrypt the document with a password’. Then, click ‘OK’. A window will pop up asking for your password. Type in your preferred password and reenter your password. When you are done, again click ‘OK’. Remember the difference between allowing permission to read the document and permission to edit the file. You only wish to password protect the ability to edit the file.
Then, proceed to click ‘Publish’. Your document is now saved in PDF version and is secured with PDF password protection. It’s recommend that you cross check your saved document.
When you open your document, a password will be required unless you have restricted the password setting for editing the document only. When you have typed in this password correctly, you can then access your document and edit the full content.
