Can we remove a long narrow clickable bar(with some hidden text and link) at the bottom of each page of this pdf file? When never I click it, it will tries to open a website in my browser.

I prefer to do that from command line, because there may be a pdf file with more pages with such bars.

I tried https://superuser.com/a/536644/9265, but it only can remove the text in the bar, and the bar and the hyperlink still exist.

Removing Links

You can remove embedded links (inserted by authoring applications or by Acrobat). Here’s how to do so in Acrobat X or XI:

Choose Tools > Document Processing > Remove All Links
