Here's how to copy a locked PDF file to Word without the hassle

Geekers - Have you ever come across a PDF file whose contents cannot be copied? And I got confused because the file couldn't be used.


PDF is a document format created in 1993 by Adobe Systems. The PDF type format is usually used to represent two-dimensional documents which include text, images, fonts, and two-dimensional vector graphics.



But unfortunately, writing and sentences contained in pdf files often cannot be copied and pasted for educational purposes, work, analysis, and so on. This is because most pdf file creators want to patent their copyrights so that others cannot copy them.
