|My friend sent me a PDF eBook, but it requires a password to open it. What can I do? Why I can't copy text or images from the PDF file downloaded from an academic website, and how can I remove password from pdf document?
I can't correct a misspelling in a PDF form, why?
My printer can print any other document except one PDF file, does it broken?
To all the questions above, the answer is to remove PDF restrictions. Let's first take a look at types of PDF restrictions.
Types of PDF Restrictions
This is a pop-up window of Adobe Acrobat when you are trying to unlock PDF password. You can see clearly the classification and the function of PDF restrictions.
PDF Open Restriction You set open restriction because you only want authorized readers to view the PDF file. EBook publishers enable open restriction of PDF eBooks to protect copyright, so that readers have to pay to get the authorization to view the book. If you write diaries and keep them in PDF, you can also lock the diaries with PDF unlocker.
PDF Copy Restriction You can't extract text, images, and other content of a PDF file with copy restriction by simply copy and paste. You may say, I can still type them out if I do want to steal the idea. Sure you can do that, but what about a PDF file with hundreds of pages? I believe nobody has the patience.
PDF Edit Restriction Don't touch my book! This could be the heart voice of a writer who keeps his work in PDF. Yes. We use PDF to preserve content because we believe it's far more difficult to change a PDF file than a MS doc or a notepad txt. However, others can still temper with unrestricted PDF files with a PDF editor. To make PDF more secure, you need to apply PDF edit restriction.
PDF Print Restriction Check out the PDF file for print restriction before you declare the printer guilty. This is the final defense of a PDF file. It won't let you make paper copies of PDF files. Publishers usually resort to this kind of restriction to prevent piracy.
