You cantA .PDF file is made so people can not delete part etc etc
You could copy the screen by pressing ctrl and the insert print screen key then pasting it into say paint or any other graphic software.
Well you can wih the right (Adobe Acrobat - expensive - Not Adobe Reader) program but without the password you'll still not be able to.
If you click "File", "Save as" one of the options is either "Save as text" or you can select the format (rich text format for example).The resulting text only file can be coverted back into PDF by some of the free writers. click hereclick hereThis method will lose images.
"If you click "File", "Save as" one of the options is either "Save as text" or you can select the format (rich text format for example)."Note if the the file is "locked and encrypted" then you won't have that option either.
Print it - Scan it - OCR it - and you'll have the text in editable/copyable form.Just as an aside, if it's been locked because it's copyright, be careful that what you do with the contents is "fair dealing".
The free PDF wrtiters install as printers, so that the output that would go to a printer is instead converted to a PDF.Printing the encryted document (if that is possible)in this way will create a new PDF without the encryption.
Not if the creator has disabled printing for the document.
have u tried click here
If the creator hasn't disabled printing it just results in a blank document when i tried it here.
