How to print a locked .pdf document

Discussion in 'Computing' started by Trevor Wilson, Dec 16, 2009.

  1. I have a locked .pdf document that I need to print out. I can view it on the
    screen ok, but I wish print out one page. Any ideas?

    **I've tried shft PrtScn. I cannot copy and paste. I've not tried a screen
    capture programme. I'll look for a freebie somewhere.

    **Not so much actually.

    **Password protected, but not for viewing, rather oddly.

    There's a few fools that do it like that, including Nokia,
    so you cant even cut and paste their code samples etc.

    Hi All,

    I tried this unlocker site on a locked pdf file I had from which I
    wanted to print a few pages.

    I couldn't print the few pages I wanted straight from the "unlocked"
    pdf file, but I could copy the wanted text into Microsoft Word and
    save the wanted text that way.

    Ghostscript. It just ignores PDF security.
