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

    • A mac, or any other system w/ CUPS on it.

      Set up a CUPS postscript que... "print" the jobs, which will create a postscript file (with no locks) then use your favorite tool to convert the ps file to pdf [wisc.edu].

      Hm... you can probably just set up a postscript printer in any OS and then "print to file" to get your postscript file. But, there may be some OS code to make Adobe happy that prevents that.

      But... I'm quite certain that CUPS will let you do it.
    • 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
