    Prevent saving or copying

    APC4828

      How do I prevent my document from being saved to another environment in my organization?  If that's not possible, can a  "Copy" watermark appear on any other version of the document that is not the original? 

       

      (What version of Acrobat would I need?)

          You cannot as copying is a OS function, not a function of Reader. You can use DRM or Password protection to prevent others from opening a document. DRM is expensive and it works. Password protection can easily be circumvented, but may be enough of a nuisance to be effective for your purpose. You can always use a watermark, but they can easily be removed unless the document is secured from change we can be accomplished with DRM or password protection.
