Hello! We’ve got an issue on our EPrints install where the permissions on a pdf are bleeding over into the generated icon of said PDF. For example, this one: http://eprints.lincoln.ac.uk/12505/. I can imagine that this is to do with whatever script is generating the icon being unable to run if the document is protected. Anyone else come across this or got any ideas how we can circumvent it? Perhaps driving the icon generation to a stock PDF icon should it come across a protected document? Thanks in advance!
