Calibre pdf-to-lrf Problem

Hej!

First I must say I love calibre really my (new and shiny) 505sc would be a lot poorer without it. So thank you kovidgoyal.

I have updated calibre to the new version 0.4.84 but since then i am having pdf conversion problems here is the latest error message which I hope you will help me overcome it.

That PDF has copy protection enabled, which calibre respects.

Can you be more specific about the copy protection?

I specifically edited the PDF with Acrobat and removed all security before trying to convert it. Is there some other copy protection that can be active on a PDF file?

Thanks for the quick reply BTW

It appears to have its no-copying bit set. i.e. the creator of the PDF file doesn't want it to be format shifted. I dont think you can remove that restriction in acrobat.

That is very strange... When I open the PDF in Acrobat it says there is no security:

Quote:
Security Method: No Security
Can be opened by: All versions of Acrobat

Printing: Allowed
Changing the Document: Allowed
Document Assembly: Allowed
Content Copying: Allowed
Content Copying for Accessibility: Allowed
Page Extraction: Allowed
Commenting: Allowed
Filling of form fields: Allowed
Signing: Allowed
Creation of Template Pages: Allowed
But I still get the error message below when trying to convert it, now in v0.4.86

Code:
Log:

I suggest converting the file to HTML in adobe acrobat and the converting the resulting HTML to LRF.
