Copy text from a copy/paste protected pdf file

March 25th, 2010 4 comments

Isn’t it annoying when people don’t hide their information, but make it hard to work with them?
Like, you know, uncommented open source code or in this case copy/paste protected pdf files.
To copy text from such a pdf open it with kpdf (a KDE pdf viewer) and unselect “Obey DRM limitations” in the KPDF settings.
Then you can use the Select Tool to copy and paste text.
Have fun!
