How to remove the protected pdf files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to fill out some docs, but the provided PDFs are "SECURED", meaning I can't use Foxit's typewriter tools. Is there any way that I can remove the security and print the pdf file?

  • Anyone with Windows can do it with no extra software in 4 simple steps.

    1. Open the PDF
    2. Go to File > Print. From your print options choose Microsoft XPS Document Writer. Although you might expect it to print, it does not print anything, it will create an XPS Document.
    3. Open the resulting XPS file
    4. Press Print, go to Microsoft PDF Creator. It will now save it as a PDF again. Again, it will not print.

    In my case I had to remove the first/last page of a document so I only printed the pages required.
