Hi :)
Err, what format was the protected document in?  If it was an MS format then LibreOffice just opens 
them without needing the password anyway.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Encryption Failure

LibreOffice 4.0

I have a spreadsheet, encrypted with a password. When I export this document to a .pdf file, I 
expected the .pdf to require the password to open. It does not. I think it should since the 
original document is encrypted.

Is this a bug, or should it be an enhancement request?

It was a LO4.0 .ods file. Further investigation: The .pdf can be exported with a password requirement, but it requires selecting the SECURITY tab and re-entering the password. I contend that if the .ods required a password to open, then an export to .pdf should have the password required and preset without having to go searching for the SECURITY tab.
