Tried the demo and it works very well. $30 is just too much for this software unless you're encrypting/decrypting a lot. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it was a MUD promo for half the price.

I tried to remove a simple password protection put on it in Preview under 10.5.7, but it would not work no matter what I did.

You misunderstood what this utility does.. There are two user level protection schemes for a PDF. The "Open" or Owner restriction encrypts and password locks the entire PDF so that you cannot open the PDF without the password.. The other Restriction/Permission Level access allows opening the document, but preventing various usage cases, such as printing or copying, depending upon the permissions flags that are set. This app allows the editing of the latter restrictions.
