Poor error message on attempting to open protected PDF


Recommended Posts

When I tried to open the FF Chartwell 2.0 User Manual (available from here) Affinity Designer displayed the following error message: "This file could not be opened. Ensure it is a valid PDF document."

 

Upon examining the document properties in PDF-XChange Editor, I discovered that 'Content Copying for Accessibility' is allowed but 'Content Copying' is not. I presume this is the reason why Designer can't open the document, but the error message isn't as helpful as it might be.
