    Some extracts from Tech Republic come as pdf files, which cannot be printed ???
    This is a nuisance.
    What can I do?
    Thanks for help,

      What do you mean by “cannot be printed”? Please post a comment with more specifics.

        That’s exactly what I thought was going on. Search google for a program called PDF Password Remover. It’ll knock out that pesky security.

      Not sure what you mean by “cant”. I havent had a single problem. But would recomend making sure Acrobat Reader is updated.

      Printing action is disabled, the printer icon appears pale and clickking upon has no effect.

      Just found the “Document Security” information for the pdf file: It is protected by a Master Password and says:
      Printing: not allowed

      As said, a nuisance! I prefer a printed copy to having the document only on the screen!

      The documents are usually copyrighted material. Therefore not printable without the authors permission. Tech Republic posts chapters from other material (I’m sure )with the writer(s)/publishers permission. It is a pain that one cannot print it to file away, but you could always buy the book.

      Are you running with Admin Privileges or are you on a Domain with Group Policies used. Either has the possibility of preventing the Adobe Reader printing out files. But I can honestly say that is something unique to your system as I’ve had no problems in the past printing the PDF files out and as of about 15 minutes ago I just ran off another one to see if there where any problems. It printed perfectly and was one of the Copyrighted Chapters of a book.

      If printing is disabled (for copyright reasons) you cannot print with ADOBE. However, HAL 9000 is right. I found a free program, which does the job.
