PDF Print Button Greyed Out

Hi All
One of your sysadmins has just left our company and he left the documentations for a rack he was responsible for in PDF format. I am trying to print it but it is grayed out...any workaround for this ?
Thx

are you opening on the same machine on which he was creating them?
and have you checked the security proeprties of the document, of non-printable option is not selected there?

nopes.....these pdfs can be unlocked for printing on the same machine on which they were created....ask him to do the necessary changes and send them again to you.....as he is the owner of the documents and you are just a viewer.

though there are tools out there to crack the pdfs....but that should be the last resort....right? :)
