combining password protected PDF files

Dec 17, 2009 5:38 AM


I need to combine two pdf files into one. But one of the file is Password Protected for Page Extraction.  It has no other restrctions other than password protection for Page Extraction.
When I try to use File-->Combine-->Merge Files into Single PDF..., it asks for password and so I cannot combine the files.


Can somebody please let me know if there is any way I can combine password protected files?


Thank You

    Remove the security before combining or use a package or portfolio.

    In Acrobat 8 you can create a package, in Acrobat 9 a portfolio.

    I tried using portfolio but could not combine all files of a portfolio into single PDF file as it again asked for a password.I am not very proficient with Acrobat.

    Put all files in a portfolio, thats all.

    Can you please let me know how to remove security where PageExtraction is password protected?

    Remove the security with the permission password.

    may be you can try with this web link. 'FREEMYPDF.COM'. if you upload the PDF file which is having protection, that web link will remove all kind of protections and give normal PDF file. so that you can combine with your another PDF file. hope this will helpful...

    All Adobe products enforce the restrictions set by the Permissions Passowrd. However, not all third-party products fully support and respect these settings.
