Hello, I'm trying to download a PDF file that was shared with me on Google Drive but there is no button or option to download. The only option I see is the "Print" button but it's greyed out and when I try to click it it states: "Printing is disabled for this file". It doesn't even allow me to copy text from the PDF because when I copy a word, then I try to paste it on a Word document and it doesn't allow me to paste it.
Is there a way to go around that? This is very annoying. I'm supposed to study for an exam from this document and I'd like to print it.
I'm using google Chrome on a Mac to see the PDF document online on Google Drive. It was shared to me through a link. I have tried many things. If I go (on Chrome) to File > Print, then it shows me the page blank without text inside.
No Adobe software is involved in this process, not even in printing. I suggest you try a support forum for Google Drive, or contact the person who sent it to you. They might have blocked printing deliberately, but might not have realized it was important to you. We won't help people bypass security, it's not allowed in this forum.
