PDF printing in Mac OS X

This was surprising to me, but very useful.

Occasionally I download a PDF and I am not allowed to save it, or even print preview. That's irritating, especially when we have a subscription to that journal -- what exactly did we pay for?

If you go to print, then Preview does give you the option to save as PS. In my experience, this does not work -- I hate PS anyway.

There is a sketchy alternative that worked for me today. Choose print, then Fax PDF, and then choose preview, then save. All this, plus you get the rush of an illicit act, forbidden by a society that could never understand me.
