Microsoft Purview | Information Protection: Maintain label when creating PDF files from VBA in Office apps (preview)

This article talks about a new feature in Microsoft Office that allows PDFs created from Office using Export to PDF to inherit the source document's labels or encryption. The article outlines that some VBA add-ins may need to be updated to avoid issues when post-processing an encrypted PDF. As a temporary mitigation, certain object model arguments will be disabled to allow time for add-in updates to be completed. This update is currently rolling out in preview and is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93406. The article provides instructions on how to update Office add-ins and includes links to related blog posts for further learning.
