Description Aron Budea 2018-01-04 22:11:42 UTC
Created attachment 138890 [details]
Sample PDF

The attached PDF was created with Word 2013 by exporting a simple document to PDF.
During export, the option "Encrypt the document with a password" was selected.
Password: 123456

Draw gives the following error upon opening: "Version Incompatibility. Incorrect file version."

Acrobat Reader DC says the file can be opened by "Acrobat 7.0 and later", and encryption level is 128-bit AES.

Observed using LO / Windows 7. LO 3.3.0 asks for password, but claims it's incorrect.

I confirm the error message and that the PDF can't be opened.

LO 3.3.0 asks for password but can't open it as Aron said.

Word 2013 can reopen it with the password.
