    Limiting access


      Is there a way to limit the opening and/or printing of a PDF?  I would like to limit access to a PDF [3 times maximum]; similar to licensing.

          There are many ways to secure the content of PDF files (passwords, certificates or DRM) but none of them will limit the number of times a file is opened or printed. Even if it were possible to set a document to print one time only, the user can print as many copies as they want - nothing in the document can take control of the operating system print driver dialog.
