I am making a User manual pdf from an Indesign file. This has links to a folder containing document pdfs. I then need to provide the client with the User Manual pdf and the folder containing the links, but I want to lock or protect the folder in some way so that the enclosed pdfs cannot be opened. However, if I protect the folder, the links do not open in my original pdf. How do I get around this problem.
I’m not sure I understand what you’re trying to do but I will point out that there is no such thing as a secure PDF.
No, it is the folder that I am trying to make secure, so that the client can sed this to customers and the user only opens the User manual pdf, but cannot open the folder containing the linked pdfs.
