Is there a reason the PDF manuals for DJI Drones (i.e. Mavic, pro, Air etc) are locked down and items cannot be copied from it? I find it very frustrating if I need to copy some quick items out of it either for reference or, to provide data / assist others on forums with info from it. I know one can do a screenshot etc, but why lock it down? Is someone going to copy and sell the manual on ebay? I think we have enough folks who do not read it as it is.   Honestly trying to understand this decision.

Your only choices here are screen shots or printing.

I understand those are the choices, I wish DJI would explain why they locked it down?

Hi, Thanks for the inquiry. We will confirm this query to the right department to see if could possibly provide an specific information on what would be the exact reason for this. Thank you for the support.

One easy workaround is to recreate the PDF by using the print feature in Chrome to save the contents as a new PDF (which won't be copy protected). You can find detailed instructions here.

Copyright is the probable reason
