Hello

we are trying to use image to send PDF's to certian people. the pdf creation is great and the scurity features are nice as well. howver due to the sensitive nature of the data we do not want to allow any copying of the PDF file at all. so it gets emailed and they can not save a copy to another place on the hardrive

Hi,

we dont want the recipients to make copies at all or we would like to be able to use Digital IDs and or certificates to encrypt the data.
so only the reader with the correct security certificate will be able to see the file.

I dont know if that is possible any ideas would be great.

and Merry Christmas

Hello,

Unfortunately, there is no option to unable the recipients to make copies, but you could have digital signature.

Refer to this link and call your sale representative.

Dertown,

The not copying option really would not work anyway. When you e-mail someone a PDF as an attachment and the person clicks on the attachment (to view it) the first thing that windows does is copy it to a temp folder. If you could not make copies of the PDF your end user would never be able to even view it!
