Accountant sends us tax returns as password protected PDFs (password needed to open it. Properties says it was created with Thomson Reuters FileCabinet CS. The security tab says I can print, copy contents, comment, etc (I can do everything execpt doc assembly and page extraction, whatever those are : )
I click on them in outlook, it opens in Acrobat Reader DC ( free version) - this is on a windows 10 pro machine by the way.
I want to keep a PDF without the password. So print to PDF? But they get sooo much larger
Working on it now, he sent a 24 page PDF that is 93kb
trying different apps:
microsoft print to PDF - 673kb
Tried printing with PDF Creator, but it balks because PDF is password protected (to open, and printing is allowed). WTF!
Tried opening in chrome. printing w/ microsoft print to pdf made it a 5MB file! And still can't use pdf creator.
What's a good combination for opening & printing a PDF or some other easy way to strip off password protection to open a PDF
