Help – my pdf file is printing a blank page.

If you get a protected pdf file, it’s possible that ‘printing’ is turned off. If you try to print this page the printer will print our a blank page with no error! If you have the password to the document you can turn printing back on. This can happen if a bank or other institution send you a password protected file with a password to access it. Once you enter the password you can ‘see’ the file, but it still may not print unless you turn on printing under file permissions.

1. Go to the ‘File’ Menu then ‘Edit permissions’

Find ‘Edit Permissions…’ in the file menu

2. Click the ‘Printing’ check box

If ‘Printing’ is not checked, this will cause the page to print blank.
