I am looking for the main huge manual in pdf. I downloaded several from different places including Roland but all are password protected if I try to highlight anything in iBooks. I need to be able to refer back to these highlights. Does anyone know the password or have an unpassworded version?

Thanks so much.

I might suggest that you check out this program - PDF-XChange Viewer - https://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer ...

I started using it to make ocr versions of my pdf documents, which allows me to copy and paste text from those I otherwise would not be able to. It has many, many other uses and I believe it can allow you to highlight, maybe even make notes - and the version I use is free...

Aw, thanks so much. I'm a Mac girl tho. Can't find any free versions on Mac, but what a great piece of software.

I do just want to mention that if it wasn't for this forum, I doubt that I would have stayed with these wonderful machines so long. I thank you and everyone that tirelessly contributes to helping us stay the course. I had a wave of appreciation today for you and everyone that is willing to mentor, I hope to be able to help at some point!

Is this a restriction on Mac's from Adobe? I just downloaded the 452 page manual from the Roland.com/us/support site and it works fine in Adobe Acrobat reader - but I'm on windows 10.

Oh! I assumed it was stand alone software. It showed a download only for PC. I woke up with another option. I stumbled onto something accidentally once by opening a pdf in Mac Preview that was passworded, then I “exported as a pdf” from Preview and all password protection was removed on the new copy. Just tried it and it worked. It seemed to be only in iBooks on a iOS device that wouldn’t let me modify. Now It will with my newly saved version!

I will trying out the Xchange tho and see if it works with my Adobe.

Calypso — No Acrobat, I use Apple's iOs iBooks app on my iPad mostly for reading/highlighting PDFs for study. This is where I was getting the error. Not when opening, just when highlighting, as it has to SAVE this to the file. So weird actually, never ran across this before... Roland had it going on tho, even with their PDF manuals back in the day... Having a Table of Contents with clickable page numbers was pretty sophisticated back in the early 2000's. They may have done this later tho...

The DVD manuals are on YouTube, well worth a watch and explains things really well.
