How do I print a contract signed by both parties? The message says it is password protected so it won't print. Shouldn't I, the author of this document, be able to "un-protect" it or get to the password somehow?
I would have to check, but it sounds like the security has been set in the file to require a password to print. Use ctrl-D to check the security tab in the document properties. Then go back and check the original PDF. There is a chance that one of the folks who signed played a game on you and set the password for printing. You could try signing yourself and see what happens.
