How to both keep hyperlinks (Indd) and make it impossible to adjust the PDF document in Acrobat 9?

Tags: #acrobat #9 #export #indesign #cs6 #hyperlinks

I created an Indesign (CS6) document with hyperlinks and exported it as a PDF document (Export -> Adobe PDF (interactive)).

 

I made 2 versions of the document. 1 full version and 1 light version (here some parts of the document are made invissible by adding white blocks over parts of the text/pictures). When opening the light PDF document in Adobe Acrobat Pro 9, it is still possible to remove those blocks. What can I do to both keep the hyperlinks working and make it imposible to remove blocks or adjust the light document in any other way?

 

Hope someone can help me with this.

 

Best regards

    The best you can do is add security to the PDF, but it only works for honest folk.

    There is no absolute security for a PDF that has interactive features because flattening removes most of them.

     

    Perhaps you should rasterize the light version in Photoshop and add new hyperlinks to that.
