You can't prevent someone from copying a PDF file.
Maybe I am not being precise about what I am doing. I have a 200 page folder that contains reports. I have to make copies of the file and give the copies to certain people. I do not want those people altering the copies in any way. I would also prefer not to have them make more copies either.
Whatever I do how do I put password protection on the copies? When I try to I can not.
You need to apply the password protection before you burn the files to the
CD, because once you do that you can't edit them anymore. This would
prevent them from editing the files (to some extent), but it will not
prevent them from copying them. That's not possible, as I said.
Thank you! From the start, I have put password protection on the PDF. The problem is I cannot print (send to my CD drive)after I put the password protection on. I thought that I would be asked for my password so I could print the file but that does not happen.
Maybe I have other problems.
I do very much appreciate your time and I know there is something simple I am overlooking.
I don't understand how printing has anything to do with placing the file on
the disc... Aren't you burning these files?
I found the problem. After I installed the password I was saving the file and than trying to burn the CD. I have to burn the CD first and than save and close the file. Now after I burn the CD it is password protected.
Thanks For The Help!
That doesn't sound right to me, to be honest... You need to apply the
security restrictions, save the file, close it (maybe close Acrobat as
well), and only then you should burn the CD.
Thank you, everything you said is right and everything is working fine now. There had to be some type of glitch.
