Unrestrict PDF is a tool for removing the restrictions on PDF documents. These restrictions prevent users from copying, editing, and extracting elements from PDF documents. With the program, users are free to copy, make changes, and print out documents. The application has a simple user interface that does not need to be configured, which makes it ideal for novice computer users. On the main window, users can open a PDF document by clicking on the “Browse” button. The program will then open the file and remove the restrictions. When the file is added to the application, users just need to click the “Unrestrict PDF” button to start the process. When the restrictions are removed, users can select the save location for the unrestricted document. By default, the output file location is the same as the location of the source file, but this can be changed by the user. The action history for the application can also be viewed on the main window.
The program supports removing restrictions for PDF documents that were created using Adobe Acrobat 7.0 and higher. Acrobat does not need to be installed in the computer in order for this application to work. Unrestrict PDF does not clog up system resources.
