Disabling copy & paste save as options

Hi Aspose team,
We are evaluating you aspose.pdf for java tool for the below requirement, could you please help us to understand whether this tool supports this feature.
we would like to disable copy, paste & save as option in an existing pdf document.

Please let us know if this is possible using aspose.words or aspose.pdf tools


Hi Ganesh,

Thanks for your interest in our products.

You can try using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for Java to apply security restrictions over an existing PDF document. As per your requirement, you can disable Text copy, PDF printing, Form filling etc but I am afraid you might not be able to restrict the PDF save option. In fact the option to save the PDF document is present over tool which is used to display the PDF document and disabling that button will go beyond the scope of PDF specification.

In case you have any further query, please feel free to contact. We apologize for your inconvenience.
