OPen password locked PDF documents in Playbook

Dear all,

 

Could anyone advice the method to OPen password protected PDF documents using Playbook ?

I know the passowrd, but the Playbook is not even asking for the password, instead it refuses to open the file - "CAN'T OPEN"

 

kindly advice.

Re: OPen password locked PDF documents in Playbook

Are you able to open PDFs in general?

Just to make sure that your Adobe reader is set to allowed...check the following:
1. go to settings on desktop (looks like circular metal gear icon on the top right of screen)
2. scroll down and open security
3. open adobe reader (should be the first one)
4. click allowed (other options are denied, prompt)

hope that helps.

This is a RIM problem. Their version of Adobe Reader is not fully functional on the Playbook. Many Adobe PDF functions are not available on the tablet.

Re: OPen password locked PDF documents in Playbook

adobe reader just a kind of additional feature on playbook so you might not be able to use it as fully function like as adobe acrobat or adobe cs on your pc.anyway on any other tablets also you might not be able to use it as fully function.if theres any tablet that would provide a fully function,it might cost you a lot of money for it. the fact is your playbook just only a tablet pc and it is not a notebook....

The Playbook Operating System is the problem.

the OS is not the issue, it is the app with its limits.

Re: OPen password locked PDF documents in Playbook

Well its kinda like "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" The version of

Adobe Reader that works with the existing Playbook OS is very limited.
