      Can you explain “allows printing but cannot print”?
      Can you explain “sharing”? I mean, if you have the file, you can copy, mail and share it, isn’t it?

      If I can view any PDF, I can print it. For some they get upset when you show them how. The blunt force method is with screen shots. I won’t get into other methods here.

      You may want such a thing but there is no such thing.

      Hey,

      Sharing an encrypted PDF with printing restrictions is a bit tricky. You could try password protecting it and sharing the password separately. Alternatively, you might consider using OCR software to extract the text and recreate the document without restrictions.

      To share an encrypted PDF of an operation and maintenance manual that allows printing but restricts other actions, you have a few options. You can share the encrypted PDF file and provide the recipient with the password or decryption key. Alternatively, if you have permission, you can remove the restrictions using a PDF editing tool and then share the modified PDF. Another option is to print the PDF and share a hard copy with the recipient. Ensure you have the necessary rights and permissions to share the manual before taking any action.
