Acrobat Version: 8.1.0

After adding a textbox to PDF, Is there a way so that, TextBox can be part of PDF document?

I don't want people to be able to change/move textbox context and I would like to brand it as part of PDF. And I cannot password protected PDF document.

I generally print/publish to PDF from Acrobat to make everything work nicely together. You still retain the ability to search/select text, and all the objects are neatly merged.

There may be another more elegant solution though...
