    Securing a PDF or flattening a PDF

    talltim1 Level 1

      When you create a PDF from Indesign, it is possible to secure it to make it non-editable, for example if you have a watermark that you don't want people to be able to remove. However, there is a lot of software applications that can over-ride the security. Is it possible to create a secure PDF from Indesign that can not be tampered with or is it possible to completely flatten a PDF (like an image) so there is no editable elements. If not, is there any third-party apps (server based or with API's) that can make a PDF more secure?

       

      Thanks, Tim
