Thanks you for your reply.

I tried your suggestion below and set the PDF_VERSION in the xep.xml file, but this is controlling the version that shows in the PDF Version field in the Description tab. The field that I am trying to control through XEP is the Compatibility
field in the Password Security - Settings dialog box. I want to set this to "Acrobat 5.0 and later". It is currently set to "Acrobat 3.0 and later". The PDF Version setting does not change the Compatibility setting.

Hello Rhonda Fitzgerald,

Edit the xep.xml configuration, explained in detail in the XEP User Guide, both of which are installed in the same location where XEP is installed, and review the:

    <generator-options format="PDF">
   <!-- <option name="COMPRESS" value="false"/> -->
   <option name="PDF_VERSION" value="1.7"/>

and change the PDF_VERSION value to 1.5

Hello again,

To further clarify, what we are trying is set as part of the Acrobat Security, it maps to the "Can be Opened by" field in the Security tab of the Acrobat Document Properties dialog box. I'd like that to be set to Acrobat 5.0 and later instead of Acrobat 3.0 and later. When this is set to Acrobat 3.0, the encryption is 40-bit RC4, and we don't want that. We tried the PDF Version PI, but that controls the PDF Version in the Description tab of the Document Properties dialog box.

I am using XEP and I have these PI's set up in my style sheet which works for giving me the security settings I need.

            <xsl:processing-instruction name="xep-pdf-ownerpassword">progress</xsl:processing-instruction>
            <xsl:processing-instruction name="xep-pdf-userprivileges">print,copy</xsl:processing-instruction>

However, I would also like to change the compatibility settings as well. Currently the default setting for my PDF is 3.0, but I would like to set it to 5.0. Is there a PI setting I could add to my XSLT to do this?
