asked on

Can an editable text PDF be printed to Adobe as image only?

Adobe Acrobat XI

An attorney claims he had an editable text PDF that he digitally signed and locked, and then printed to Adobe PDF (File > Print > Adobe PDF).  He claims that after printing it to PDF, it became an image only file (not searchable).

Is this possible?  He submitted it to the Court and the file was rejected so I really need to figure out how this could have happened.  I did not think it was possible to print an editable text file as image only.

Anyone?

I've requested that this question be closed as follows:

Accepted answer: 0 points for JOrzech's comment #a40656791

for the following reason:

I figured it out ... "Print as Image" was checked.
The author's initial post asked it it's possible to print a PDF as an image. Before any other posts were made, he figured out that one way is if Print As Image is checked. So his third post (still before any other posts were made) became, in essence, the new question:
Please comment here if there is ANY OTHER way to make an image only file by printing to PDF.
My answer, which is correct, is:
There are other PDF print drivers that create image-only PDFs.
This certainly answers the question of "ANY OTHER way to make an image only file by printing to PDF" and I think deserves to be an Assisted Solution. Regards, Joe
Hi Matt,
That's a very fair resolution. Thank you! Regards, Joe
