    hi ppl,

    I have a pdf file which is protected for printing. the option is not highlighted. I badly want to print it! How can I go about? Are there any other softwares available which doesnt care about the protection and opens it without reading the appropriate code??

    thks,
    legolas

    If the size is small, then you can use the print screen option and then print the images.

    The very purpose of disabling print by the author will be defeated if you use methods to print it. There are a lot of methods in unprotecting protected pdf documents. But they cannot be discussed here.

    situation: legolas created a beautiful and important brochure in a dtp software and exported it as a pdf file and protected it. He forgot the password or lost the original file with print permissions. We are assuming that situation and helping him. ;-)

    I have printed PDF documents in Linux, which have the print button disabled in WIndows O.S!!!
    So use Linux & print the PDF document.
