How to disable the Save button For a pdf?

Nov 10, 2011 4:27 AM

Hi,

 

I have a requirement that when you open the livecycle developed pdf, the Save option available in the toolbar (Save As icon) and File menu of the Reader should be disabled. A button will be provided in the form separately to provide the Save functionality. Can anybody help me reg. this? Is there any setting available for this in Adobe Pro or any other tool?

 

Regards,

Maria

    Hi,

     

    you can hide the save menu item using the hideMenuItem method.

    But, this requires to install a folder level script on the clients pc first and it won't disable the opportunity to save the form via ctrl + s.

    A folder level script is a js-file that you have to create yourself.

     

    Here's a tutorial about.

    It's not really difficult to disable the save button. But it depends on the context from where you want to delete it. even if you disable the save button the user has the option to print screen and create a fresh pdf. So your question has some philosophical aspects to deal with. Please mail me at viplov.rana87@gmail.com incase of further quries. I've understood your problem and have got a solution but it's not somewhat legitimate to do. I can share it with you through email.
