Suggestion: add option to remove PDF password

Post by ZoNi » Thu Nov 15, 2012 11:26 am

Maybe I have already suggested this, but anyway...

Please, consider adding option to remove "owner password", that would allow printing etc. of "secured" PDF's.

I know there are some other tools for that, but I would prefer this option in PDF-Xchange Viewer.

Hello ZoNi,

If you do have the owner password - you can change the document security via File -> Document Properties (Ctrl-D) -> Security - and change from the drop down meny to "No Security".

Otherwise what you are asking for is violating the PDF specification and possibly the authors copyright etc and we can not offer it.
