Create PDF: All You Need to Know

Create a new PDF then hit ‛Created. After the new PDF is saved to your computer or the network, Open Document Viewer on Firefox or File Manager in Chrome will show you that the ‑Encrypted‽ PDF is encrypted in Chrome. That's it! Now whenever you want to take a screenshot, do not forget to take that same copy of the ‑Encrypted‽ PDF before you copy it. This way, if you have made a mistake, you get the original one. Update: Reader Ryan S. from the reader email group writes in that he found the same solution in Microsoft Office. Just find the .docx for a document, and right click on it. From the Permissions panel, choose ‑Open‽, and it'll open the Microsoft Office DOCX file. He doesn't specify who he got their advice from. Thanks to reader Matt S. for sharing this tip.
