I am using Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0. (Downloaded tryout) and was creating a couple PDFs. I made those in Adobe Designer (came with download). Alright, so I save those in Designer as .pdf. Great. I go back into Acrobat, and I try to group them together using the Create PDF using Multiple Files. When I go to select the two pdfs that I just made, it won't let me, saying that it's protected and it cannot be used in that. What do I do to unprotect them or what am I doing wrong?

Hi AmericaWestAirlines
You cannot use the "Create PDF using Multiple Files" function in Acrobat Pro with pdf's that were created with Adobe Designer (lifecycle). The message is a bit misleading as it's not actually locked. You can check the files security settings in either app but default is "none".
To use that function, create your pdf's in Word, Publisher, etc. Acrobat will convert and combine them from their native format. You can also use image files as well as plain old pdf's created in Acrobat Pro.
