I recently purchased a canon 90 D and downloaded the manual. The manual is locked by a password so it does not allow me to create bookmarks or highlight areas that I wish to revisit. I am also cannot save my place in the manual. Is there a way that I can get this unlocked? This was not true for the manual of the 70 D.
Thanks for the suggestion. I had downloaded it from the Cannon site Just in case, I followed your link, put in my camera model, downloaded it it again and when I go to modify the document, I get this message:
"Without the owner password, you do not have permission to create or modify annotations in the document."
I tried exporting it to PDF and the copy was locked. I wonder what the password is and why it is locked?
There are plenty of web sites that sell owner manuals for a small fee, especially older ones. Or, people will copy the content to create a “Blah For Dummies” type of book, and sell it. People will go to great lengths to make a profit off of the intellectual content made by someone else.
Canon does offer the user guide for our cameras free of charge. The documents are for viewing only and they cannot be modified for copyright protection. This would prevent the creation of bookmarks or highlights since it's considered modification to the PDF file. I do apologize for the inconvenience.
