Password for PDF requested JUST WHEN PRINTING

Recommended Posts

While I've heard that educational license won't allow opening an exported pdf into Photoshop, I have never been asked for a password simply to print, until VW2014.

My lovely file is at the printers and he cannot open the pdf to print.

I've checked my own settings in my pdf printer driver, though I suspect that won't affect a VW pdf.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks so much --

What application do you have the PDF open in that are you attempting to print from?

The printer man says Adobe Acrobat X.

He tried print as image and so I was able to get a print, but I assume that is a jpeg. Quality is fine but I wonder if it would be even crisper if it was printed from the pdf itself.

It was most likely because they were using Acrobat which sometimes tries at attach owner data to the PDF during saving and printing.

The password is really only intended to stop editing of the PDF, printing is permissible.

Adobe Reader by itself or another open source PDF viewer should not ask for any sort of password.
