Topic: How to remove profane name on PDF doc?
Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 162034

I have a 28,000 page corporate PDF document. Someone decided to add a profane/inappropriate name and website to every other page in the document.

The name/website appears as light gray text in the lower left-hand corner of every other page. I can select the text and delete it using the "touch up object tool," but I can't sit and do 14,000 pages!

It is very important that I get this removed before someone else views this document. The original creator of the document did not add security to the document. If I can get this removed, I will add password security to prevent future pranks.

I am not familiar with adding these types of comments, so I do not know how to remove them. If anyone could assist me, I would be indebted to you [and it would save me a lot of trouble and potential embarrassment].

Thank you.

Joseph

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
