    Omitting content when exporting PDF

      Hi all,

       

      I would like to bounce off my idea here and get feedback if it's even realizable.

       

      I am currently trying to come up with a way how to create content in inDesign that could be restricted. By this I mean that for certain versions of the exported PDF some parts of the content would be omitted. So I could have a version that would have the full content of the inDesign document and another version in which parts would be missing.

       

      I did some research and found out it is possible restrict PDF rights, but that works only on the whole documents.

       

      I thought it could be dealt with while the PDF is created and somehow use tags to mark the areas that would be omitted and make a script that would target those tagged areas and leave them out of the export.

       

      Is the idea crazy or could it be done?

       

      Thanks for your help!
