...or Encrypted?
Authored by: invisiblejon on Aug 20, '10 10:45:42AM

I had a miserable-freakin'-time with this. I followed all of the instructions. I couldn't print selected pages because the ability to print to PDF was (inexplicably) disabled. I was at my wits' end.

Then I noticed that even though the documents were not locked in the Finder or in Preview, they *were* encrypted. So I re-saved each document as a PDF *without encryption*.

Ta-dah! Suddenly, I could drag-add and rearrange pages to my heart's content, then re-save them as one whole file. So, the issue (at least in my case) was that the PDFs were saved encrypted (not with passwords, just encrypted).

(Note: I made an account just to share this tip with y'all. Odds are I'll never be back again. I hope this helps.)
