    I'm trying to copy and paste a graph from a pdf document into a Word
    document. My operating system is Windows Vista.

    I've tried to print from the pdf document but nothing happens. I have
    several graphs that I need and don't want to have to copy them all out by
    hand.

    Any help would be most gratefully accepted.

    My email address is: hokokeha@hotmail.com
    Thanks in advance

    Hi, BernieMurray,

    Is the real problem that you are unable to print the PDF? Are you using Word
    to try to work around that problem?

    Your PDF document has security settings in it. If you go to the "Properties
    for the document when you have it open in Adobe Acrobat, check the security
    settings, they may be set not to allow copying , printing or editing. If
    there are security restrictions, as far as I know, only the person who
    created the PDF can change them.
