everything works on 10.9sometimes buggy but free
Simply does nothing. I even donated some $$ and the program stalls. Move along.
Mountain Lion, 2009 Mini --??? Just tested it on one of my locked bank statements, It made an unlocked copy just fine.
Great with 10.8.3. Does the job simply and quickly.Give the man a few dollars – he's got a horse to feed in Texas.
Odd, says it fails then it actually unlocks the pdf.The only issue is that it doesn't tag the recovered version and save it to the same location, instead it opens it in Preview as "Untitled".Can't complain as it is free and does the job but I shall be sticking with pdf-Recover.
Easy to download. Simple to install and configure. Worked first time and very quickly. Interface looks a bit clunky but it doesn't interfere with functionality. It just saved me a lot of time. Can't comment on stability at this stage, but the review demands it so I'll guess on a 4.5. It may not work on the next file I try. Still, I've sent my donation.
A really great application that has helped me already many times.
It worked for me! I have a couple of pdf files that I can open but I can't edit. Thanks to this app I made an editable version of those pdf.I give 4 stars instead of 5 because I think the way the tab panes switch between them is disturbing.
horrible, it doesnt crack the password but like others creates an image of the orignal and saves it as "unlocked" witch in no way is unlocked just screen printed and saved the find ocr features of the original are gone ty but no ty
Well it works but it is Nagware. Every single time it says it has failed with method 1 and at the end nags for a donation.Further it strips the name off and replaces it with "Unlocked copy", which opens in Preview, which is a cause of much futzing about in Lion which doesn't save to where the file was opened.
This program is free, donations welcome.Calling it NagWare is a little unfair. Just uncheck the box in the preferences that says "Remind me to donate". Thats all there is to it.
Also, replacing the name with Unlocked Copy is a preference. You can choose how to save the unlocked PDF, replacing the name is just one of the options.
Thanks for the information, just it is quite clumsy.I've gone back to using Ovid's pdf Recover, which is faster and more productive, even though that could be improved.I paid for pdf Recover and I'd pay for PDF Unlock but it would need to work reliably, with less steps (try one) and a more useful result.
