Permissions Issue (Deny Copy & Paste Access)

By Marc Bruce ·
Hi Guys,

Hoping one of you can help me out with this, I am needing to deny a certain security group write/copy&paste access yet still allow them to open up the Document/PDF. Is this possible?

To open a document you need read access. Read access includes copy. I do not think there is any way to do as you describe.

possible in Acrobat

If you're using Adobe Acrobat to create or modify the PDF, you can apply security settings there to limit the ability of readers to copy, paste, save, etc.
