  • I wonder if a Mac's 'Print to PDF' function turns off the security or passes it along?

    • That was one of the first things I tried (although at work I tragically have to use Winblows... and yes, I do feel... unclean... I'd sucessfully managed not to touch Win for about 5 years other than trying to remove spyware from my dad's computer) but the security settings in the document don't allow you to print to a file either.

      Our I.T. guy installed a bit of naughtiness that had it's way with a couple of the files but it corrupted some that is was able to unlock when we tested it, so I stashed that away for future experiments. Plus, since it was a "demo" it would open only the first page of the multi-page files and I was pretty sure they weren't going to cough up dough for an "anti-security" tool ;-)

      Fortunately, after a short conference call with the person in charge of Document Control for the custie, who proved to be more than reasonable and started sending the files as fast as he could gather them. The most sensible person I dealt with during this 2 1/2 day debacle.

      I'll have to try out the suggested CUPS solution on my own, but for now I'm just glad it's over. I still can't believe the resistance to just talk to the customer though. Starting to think about updating my resume already after only 2 1/2 months. A very short honeymoon.
