    How to save a pdf with security options enabled when saving while printing is not supported

    AndHisLions

      I want to add security options (figure 2) to a pdf to prevent copying, saving and printing but Adobe wont allow me to save these options while printing (figure 3). The issue is that you can't get to the security options feature without opening the print dialogue box (figure 1) which you also can't close without closing the security options feature. Its a vicious cycle haha.


      Figure 1: Print dialogue box allowing you to save as a pdf
