Returns OK or error.


Imports the encryption settings from the currently open import file.
If the PDF file is not encrypted, the function does nothing. To determine whether the open PDF file is encrypted call DynaPDF.GetInIsEncrypted.
The encryption settings should be imported to make sure that the PDF file can be saved with the same settings after it was edited. The user rights should be considered if the file was opened with the open password, also if the password was just an empty string. See DynaPDF.GetUserRights for further information.
If the file was opened with the owner password, then all editing rights should be grated. The PDF file must be closed with DynaPDF.CloseFile or DynaPDF.CloseAndSignFile for example. Don't use DynaPDF.CloseFileEx for example since this function would override the encryption settings.
If the file should be saved unencrypted call DynaPDF.ResetEncryptionSettings() before closing the file. 
If the function succeeds the return value is 1. If the function fails the return value is 0.
