I printed a web page into a pdf on my mac. How do I get rid of the links in it? I tried re-printing the pdf into another one to no avail.

I notice from your profile that you also have registered with askubuntu. There is an answer to your question on askubuntu here. – karel Apr 25 '13 at 6:04
Thanks! Is there a solution on a mac? – David Faux Apr 25 '13 at 7:51
@DavidFaux: The answer linked to above uses pdftk, which is available for OS X, Windows etc. as well. – Karan Apr 25 '13 at 14:19

I think that the best way to get rid of it is to save file as a pdf one and edit it after. I once used PDFescape it was pretty effective for me, although I used the most simple function - I needed to add some text and to erase another part. Also over here there is an instruction on editing pdf files, this might be helpful for you too.
