Friends,

Can anyone tell me how to make PDF Copy protected ? I did lots of Google search but no perfect method found.

Requirement is Simple. MS Word document is saved as PDF.

Document is saved as PDF at 100 % in MS word but it opens at 130% in Adobe PDF. - How to make it open at 100 % Only ?

Set permissions as - Anyone can print the document but NO ONE should be able to copy the content from PDF. (Technically - Content Copying = Not Allowed)

Do not want to upload to any ONLINE service as document is confidential.
Is there any FREE software which can do this ? Please help.

Security cannot be applied to PDFs with the free Adobe Reader 9, which is what we all usually have. You Acrobat Standard or professional, Goto main menu Advanced then Security and then encrypt with password

Or you can use a third party application like novaPDF to password protect the file .....

Hope this helps ...

Bro, I dont want to encrypt the PDF or assign password to it.

I want PDF to be opened by anyone but no one should be able to copy from it.

i use docupub to upload and convert doc to pdf. u can set encryption so that the pdf can be opened, printed but content cannot be copied. i guess that is not an option for you.

Try PDFCreator - a free software that installs a virtual pdf printer... After installing, when you print, select this printer and give print command... A form comes up with specifications of title, where to save, etc... There is an Options button at the bottom. Select it...

1. In the left side, choose Formats and select PDF format. Right side changes to give options for pdf... Under security tab, you have option to set printing and copying permssions...

2. For the open in 130%, it may be a setting in your other software you use for pdf conversion... Check if the problem persists with PDF Creator...

Well I use PDF creater too It does the job properly.
Document is saved as PDF at 100 % in MS word but it opens at 130% in Adobe PDF. - How to make it open at 100 % Only ?
Well it seems to me its your zoom setting problem.
Navigate to view>>zoom>>Actual size. (In general its set to fit width that is why it seems enlarged but is set for better reading)
That ought to do it.

1. This is precisely the software you need: PDFTK Builder. It is free and is available as a portable app

2. The document opening at 130% is not the problem of the document, it is the setting of the viewer (most probably). To confirm this, try a different viewer like Foxit
