Pls see below. I already entered the password to open and get inside the PDF. I then clicked on Protect, Encrypt, Remove Password. But THAT password I entered, isn't the "Permissions Password". It doesn't work when I typed it below.

If you recommend software, please specify if free. I prefer free.

Please don't just advise me to ask the author. Presume the author doesn't reply to emails, or refuses to remove the password.

  • Ask the author. Seems like the author of this PDF encrypt the document (open password) and also lock with different password the option to remove open password Nov 8 '21 at 18:51
  • Assume the author doesn't reply to emails, or refuses to remove the password.

  • In such case you should enter the open password every time. Nov 9 '21 at 5:04

The easiest solution would be to print to a PDF printer, Microsoft's one does the job for me in these situations.

Another option would be to use something other than Adobe's Acrobat tools.

Check out:

  • PDF-XChange Editor a free editor that might allow you to modify the properties you need.
  • NAPS2 - This one is a scanner tool that allows you to manipulate and author PDFs.

Hope this helps.
