Printing PDF encryted files.

  nagonlouse 12:34 24 Nov 2006

Can anyone tell me how to print PDF encrypted files. I have lost the Instruction Book for my Digital camcorder so I have downloaded the instruction book from the JVC website for the particular model. I have tried to print the files but have noticed a closed padlock in the bottom left hand corner of the page, and does this mean it is Encrypted. Any advice will be appreciated. (I do have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed)

The padlock means that you can print or copy the file but not edit it.
To print, open the file with Acrobat Reader click on print (top l/h corner), set up printer parameters and away you go.

oldal, Thank you for the quick response but to click on the padlock it says,in a nutshell, No Print, No Copy, No Edit. Ive tried allways to print this manual but the Print Icon is permanently blacked out.

I have Adobe 7.0.8 already on my PC. The problem is that as I have already stated the files from JVC.are password encrypted and I wondered if there was a way round this. I have downloaded the manual OK and I can read it but I would prefer to Print it and make my own instruction book.Thanks again.

Thanks for the link, I have downloaded it and tried it but it only opened 5 of 44 pages. It requests I pay for the full version. Do you know a way round this. Thanks again for your help.

FoxitReader can be used to create text files (it's freeware):

Stuartli, I have tried your Foxit opener but as Password Remover from "seedie" they only open 10% of the files and as there are 44 pages/files it asks you to pay for the updated version to open the others so I`ll keep working on it. Thanks to all.
