How to Disable Print – Disable PDF Printing & Print to File
Disable printing of your pdf documents & files
You should ask why it is important to disable printing from pdf documents. Well if you disable printing then this will prevent your documents from being readily photocopied (or scanned) and then shared. If a document is print disabled and has other DRM controls applied to prevent sharing, then it ensures your documents cannot be viewed by unauthorized users.
Using Locklizard DRM software you can simply and easily create print disabled PDF documents. By setting a default, any PDF document you protect will have printing disabled. To disable print you just protect the PDF document whilst leaving the ‘allow printing’ checkbox unchecked – there is no special disable printing from pdf button to select.
Apart from being able to disable print, Locklizard DRM software provides further printing control mechanisms such as limiting print copies, preventing document access after print copies have been depleted, and disable print to file. It is important to disable print to file if you allow printing, so that users can not readily make a print file copy and then either turn your protected documents into unprotected PDF format or print it as many times as they wish.
Locklizard has 3 DRM products that enable you to create print disabled files:
- Locklizard Safeguard lets you disable print in pdf documents
- Locklizard Protector lets you disable print in html pages
- Locklizard Flashguard lets you disable print of swf flash files
Although you can disable print in Adobe Acrobat, unfortunately this protection can be easily removed since it is only protected with a password, and there are many password crackers freely available on the Internet to remove the Adobe disable print protection.
So if you are looking for how to disable printing of your documents or prevent printing from pdf, check out any of the above DRM products.
