    Default Unlocking Adobe files

    Does anybody know if it is possible to 'unlock' an adobe file? I have some documents I need to write on and they are downloaded in Adobe, but I can only click on the document, not input data.

    I hope this makes sense!

    Can't you change it to open with something else like Works Word Processor.
    You don't have to be mad to know me but it helps.

    I change my files by right clicking on the file i want and then go down to open with. It might work try it.

    No, you would need the Adobe PDF writer to be able to do that and it doesn't come cheap, although someone may know a free/cheap alternative.

    If it's a form the cheapest way to do it (if you don't have the necessary software) is to print the pages out, hand fill them in and then either post them back to the recipient or scan them and e-mail them back as attachments.

    Thanks Bob, I have been printing the documents (workbooks) and hand writing them as a study copy, I was hoping doing it on the computer would be quicker and neater. Never mind!

    This can also be done using OpenOffice plus the PDF extension.

    www.openoffice.org

    http://extensions.services.openoffic...ject/pdfimport

    Then just save as Word or native OpenOffice format for future editing.
