How to Remove Flash from Adobe PDF Document

This entry explains how to extract Adobe Flash PDF file to a common Adobe PDF file that does not have flash.

If you have come across this issues, it may be due to a notification that states that Adobe Flash is required to open this Adobe PDF file. Well naturally your thinking a potential virus or malware infection right? Well you should, but I won't get into that.

So if you do receive a message that states that you need to upgrade your version of Acrobat to view the Adobe Flash PDF I would like you to do the following steps, to avoid having to upgrade.

1. Begin by opening the Adobe PDF file.
2. Highlight ALL documents by pressing CTRL+A
3. Go to: File > Extract from Portfolio
4. Now fine a destination to save the files.
5. Once done, hit ok and the files will begin converting to PDF (with NO flash)

This will save you a call to your IT help desk, and prevent others from having to upgrade they're Acrobat / PDF Readers.
