I have stumbled across a web-site that has me very puzzled. It has a link
to download a pdf file for viewing. When I click on the link, Acrobat is
triggered and the pdf is displayed. However, if I try to save the file to
my hard-drive, it goes through the motions and places a file on my drive,
but when I try to open it - it comes up with an error message saying that
the file is not available.
I know it is possible to lock things from being saved off web-sites, but
didn't know that pdf files could be locked this was as well. Is this what
has happened or is it a possibly a problem with my system?
