Disable save- save as and print

Received : 2007/10/29 09:18:21
Message : Hi,

For one of our clients, we need to have a functionality in our product to disable Save, Save As and Print functionality for the PDF documrnts. We understand that IE will store the document in temporary location anyways but we need to make it difficult for uneducated end user to be able to save the documrent. Is there a way to do it using this kit?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, this answers my question too, but the wiki link doesn’t work anymore - can you supply an updated link please?

Hi Brendan,

Thanks for contacting support.

Please visit the following link for required information on Set Privileges on an Existing PDF File (Facades)

In case of any further query, please feel free to contact. We are sorry for this inconvenience.


With DocumentPrivilege API, we are able to disable print, copy and Save
But Save As is always possible

How to disable Save As Button ??

Thanks for your Reply

Hi there,

Thanks for your inquiry. I am afraid it is not possible to disable the Save Option using Aspose.Pdf. The “Save As” option is not a feature / property of PDF document. It is the feature of the Tool / Viewer which is used to display the PDF document and Aspose.Pdf can only manipulate the PDF document and not the PDF Viewer /Tools.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,
