WR Manual PDF Security Password

20 posts in this topic

I downloaded the manual for my '06 WR450 a while back from the Yamaha site listed here. Great manual but I want to delete the other language pages to make it easier to peruse and also when I need to print a couple of pages. Plus, it should trim it down close to have the total number of pages.

The full version of Acrobat allows for page deletion but the document itself has security enabled. Both versions of the files I have are the same in that aspect. I found a program that will strip the password but it leaves a big red watermark on each page until you buy the program for $60.

Any ideas?

Thanks

if you are using a Mac, you have the capability to simply "print to pdf". Open your document, choose the page range and "print to pdf".

If you're using windows you can download cutePDF from www.cutepdf.com. This will create a virtual PDF printer that you can choose when printing a document.

Thanks for the info but the manual is already a PDF. Btw, Word 2007 and up will allow you to send a document as a PDF attachment (at least on the Windows version).

What I want to do is delete the foreign language pages in the PDF manual. Since the manual PDF file is security protected, deleting pages is not allowed.

I was suggesting printing only the pages you want to a PDF file. If it's english from page 1-29 and spanish from 30-50. Only print pages 1-29 to a new pdf file

Why go through deleting the other Lang. when you can download the english only version? Download this program to unlock the doc and u r good to go!

Both copies I found to download were the same, multi-language protected files. The link you gave me worked like a charm. Three other programs left water marks after processing.

I wish it were that easy but they are every other page. Deleting every other page won't be that quick but it will do the job.

Thanks all for the help. :cheers:

I got it trimmed down last night. 786 pages cut down to 353 (23 megs down to 14) by removing all but the English text. Now I need to re-do the bookmark links and I'll be jamming.

Thanks again for all the input and help. :cheers:

I'll send you a PM. Once you remove the security, it was really easy as long as you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat (not just the reader).

No problem. I still need to correct all the bookmark links from the table of contents. I'd be more than happy to email it out when I'm done. Start PMing me your email addy with "manual" as the subject and when I get it finished, I'll send copies out. :ride:

Since it is a free download from the Yamaha source and I won't be profiting financially from it, there should be no problem with that as far as violating any TT forum rules and regs. If so admins, please let me know. I don't want to get put into time out. :p

No, what you are doing is OK as long as you make no money from it.

Please, anyone who wants it, please make your request via PM.

Carl: I suggest putting the manual on a server some place like on MediaFire, then yu can just send people the link and if you want, post the link in this thread and let people click/fetch it on their own.

Thanks William. Good idea too, I'll look into that.

Finally got finished. It's optimized for Acrobat 9.x and later and is just over 6 megs. Just English text and all the bookmarks are good.

I've sent it out to the peeps who pm'd me already.

Here you go boys, have at it...

2006 WR450F English only manual

It's 6.6 megs. Right click and "save link as" seems to work best, at least in FireFox 4 when I tested it. IE 9 worked fine either way. Ymmv.
